1ANOVA and Chi-square test used to test differences between sexes and among FPGs within sex. All differences between sexes significant at P < 0.001. Among female FPGs differences in "S-lipid levels" and "Blood pressure" are significant at P < 0.01; remaining differences non-significant ("Diabetes" P = 0.55, "IGT" P = 0.97, "IFG" P = 0.17, "Perceived health" P = 0.17). Among male FPGs differences in "S-lipid levels" and "Perceived health" are significant at P < 0.01, "IGT" P = 0.03; remaining differences non-significant ("Blood pressure" P = 0.65, "Diabetes" P = 0.54, and "IFG" P = 0.49).
