  1. All of the values reported are mean ± SD unless otherwise noted. Differences between healthy and metabolic syndrome subjects were statistically significant, with the exception of race and sex (M-Male; F-Female). SBP indicates systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein. DBP and triglyceride P≤0.01; all others P≤0.001.
