  • RESULTSdWomen had higher %SSAT (37 vs. 23% in men; P , 0.001) despite a similar mean waist circumference. Fasting plasma glucose (P = 0.046) and HbA1c (P = 0.006) were both lower with increased tertile of absolute SSAT. In regression models adjusted for age, waist circumference, and classes of medical treatments used in this patient population, increased %SSAT was significantly associated with decreased HbA1c (b = 20.317; P = 0.013), decreased daytime ambulatory blood pressure (b = 20.426; P… CONTINUE READING
