  1. The values represent geometric mean and range except for gender and age (which is median and range) LBMI refers to individuals with low BMI with T2DM, NBMI refers to individuals with normal BMI with T2DM. NS Not significant. Non parametric Mann-Whitney U tests was used to calculate the difference between the two groups
