  1. Data were expressed as mean ± standard deviation for normal distribution and as median (Interquartile range 25-75%) for skewed variables.
  2. BMI: body mass index; WC: waist circumference; SBP: systolic blood pressure; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; TG: triglyceride; TC: total cholesterol; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein-cholesterol; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein-cholesterol; FPG: fasting plasma glucose; 2hPG: 2 h postprandial glucose; HbA1c: hemoglobin A1c; INS0: fasting insulin; INS30: 30 minutes postprandial serum insulin; INS60: 60 minutes postprandial serum insulin; INS120: 120 minutes postprandial serum insulin; INS180: 180 minutes postprandial serum insulin;
  3. Group was defined by the level of serum TG. Normal TG Group: newly diagnosed T2DM with TG up to 1.70 mmol/L; High TG Group: newly diagnosed T2DM with TG over 1.70 mmol/L;
  4. *P < 0.05 versus Group 1.
