  • BMI indicates body mass index; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; HDL‐C, high‐density lipoprotein cholesterol; hsCRP, high sensitivity C‐reactive protein; LDL‐C, low‐density lipoprotein cholesterol; SBP, systolic blood pressure; TC, total cholesterol.

  • * Baseline values were obtained before randomization, at the end of 2 weeks run‐in AAD. All values were reported as means±SD, except for insulin and hsCRP.

  • * hsCRP and insulin are reported as median with 25% and 75% percentile values.
