Obesity: BMI ≥25.0 kg/m2; Elevated waist circumference, waist circumference ≥90 cm in males and ≥80 cm in females; Elevated blood pressure, systolic blood pressure ≥130 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥85 mmHg and/or the use of antihypertensive drugs; Elevated triglyceride, fasting serum triglyceride ≥1.69 mmol/l and/or the use of triglyceride-lowering drugs; Low HDL cholesterol, fasting serum HDL cholesterol <1.03 mmol/l in males and <1.29 mmol/l in females. Metabolic syndrome was defined according to the definition of “Harmonizing the Metabolic Syndrome.” Model, multivariate adjustments with age, sex, duration of diabetes, current smoking habits, current drinking habits, total energy intake, fat intake, saturated fatty acid intake, leisure time physical activity and use of oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin.
