  1. P-value represents the significance of the difference between case with MetS and control. All continuous variables were compared using t test. Health-related behaviors were assessed according to the linear-by-linear association of chi-square test
  2. BMI body mass index, MetS Metabolic syndrome, WC waist circumference, HDL high density lipoprotein, SBP systolic blood pressure, DBP diastolic blood pressure, SD standard deviation
