Table 1 Anthropometric and biochemical features of lean (n = 14; 7 males and 7 females) and obese (n = 20; 10 males and 10 females) individuals. For symmetrically distributed variables, data are shown as mean ± SD and statistical difference between the two groups was tested by two-tailed unpaired Student’s t test. For skewed distributions, data are shown as median (first quartile—Q1; third quartile—Q3) and statistical differences between the two groups were tested using Mann-Whitney U test. BMI, body mass index; TC, total cholesterol; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG, triglyceride; CRP, C-reactive protein
