  1. Logistic regression adjusted for age, age squared, waist circumference, body mass index, physical activity level, family history of diabetes, menopausal and hormone therapy status, saturated fat, alcohol, dietary fibre and energy.
  2. HOMA: homeostasis model assessment for insulin resistance. Glycemic variables are defined in the Methods section. GL: glycemic load, GI: glycemic index.
