Values of r represent correlation coefficient. Values of β are standardized regression coefficients. BMI – body mass index; TSH – thyroid stimulating hormone; FT3 – free triiodothyronine; FT4 – free thyroxine; TC – total cholesterol; LDL-C – low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HDL-C – high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG – triglycerides; FBG – fasting blood glucose; FINS – fasting serum insulin; HOMA-IR – homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance; HOMA-β – homeostasis model assessment of β cell function; WBC – white blood cell; NLR – neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio. BMI was estimated after adjustment for gender and age; other variables were estimated after adjustment for gender, age and BMI.
