  1. Abbreviations: Height SDS: height standard deviation scores; BMISDS: body mass index standard deviation scores; IGF-1 SDS: insulin like growth factor-1 standard deviation scores; SBP: systolic blood pressure, DBP: diastolic blood pressure; FPG: fasting plasma glucose; ALT: alanine aminotransferase; UA: uric acid; TG: triglyceride; TC: total cholesterol; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein-cholesterol; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein cholesterol; VLDL-C: very low density lipoprotein-cholesterol. According to children and adolescents dyslipidemia consensus. Critical value of LDL-C was 2.85–3.34 mmol/L; High value was defined as of LDL-C level ≥ 3.37 mmol/L. Continuous variables are expressed as means ± standard deviations and categorical data using number (percentage)
