Identified variables with normal distribution. Descriptive values are expressed as mean ± SD or median [IQR] depending on their normal distribution according to Shapiro-Wilks test. Adjusted values in multiple comparisons are not performed for variables with nonsignificant differences according to the overall test ( overall). The column “LRT ” refers to the likelihood ratio test value measuring the overall differences among groups by comparing the models with and without group identification. Box-Cox transformation of the dependent variable to get normally distributed residuals from the multivariate linear regression analysis. Age adjusted value in linear regression analysis.
