FPG fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c glycosylated haemoglobin, TAG triacylglycerides, BMI body mass index, WC waist circumference.

1 T2DM group only.

Partial correlation coefficients (r) controlled for covariates; Participants taking statin medications excluded from lipid analysis; Participants taking oral hypoglycaemic agents excluded from glycaemic profile analysis; All analyses controlled for age; Dietary intake analysis control for energy intake. No significant partial correlations observed in relation to alternate healthy eating index.

Statistically significant (P < 0.05).
