  1. Continuous variables are given as median (interquartile range) and categorical variables as the number of subjects with the characteristic of interest. Abbreviations: SDS = standard deviation score; BMI = body mass index; ALT = alanine transaminase; AST = aspartate transaminase; GGT = gamma-glutamyl-transferase; INR = international normalized ratio; HOMA-IR = homeostasis model assessment index of insulin resistance; ISI = insulin sensitivity index.* Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test for continuous variables and Fisher's exact test for categorical variables.
