  1. Bold and italicized text indicates significant values. BMI = body mass index; BF% = body fat percentage; WHR = waist to hip ratio; WC = waist circumference; HC = hip circumference; apoB = apolipoprotein B; apoA1 = apolipoprotein A1; TC = total cholesterol; HDL-C = high density lipoprotein cholesterol; TC/HDL-C = TC to HDL-C ratio; apoB/apoA1 = apoB to apoA1 ratio.
