Data were presented as mean±standard deviation for continuous variables or as number and percentage for categorical variables.

BMI, body mass index; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; ALT, alanine aminotransferase; AST, aspartate aminotransferase; γ-GTP, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase; WBC, white blood cell; NLR, neutrophil lymphocyte ratio; CRP, C-reactive protein; PSA, prostate specific antigen; CEA, carcinoembryonic antigen; CA 19-9, carbohydrate antigen 19-9.

aThis variables were log-transformed because of a relevantly skewed distribution.
