*crude p < 0.03 or p < 0.04 when adjusted for age, BMI, smoking and alcohol consumptions with a recessive model (adjusted means 5.51 ± 0.05 for GG vs 5.52 ± 0.05 for GA vs 5.28 ± 0.11 for AA subjects). These variables were log-transformed to obtain normal distributions. Circ. : circumference. WHR : waist-to-hip ratio. Chol. : cholesterol. Among the 1120 individuals genotyped, data on several variables were missing for few subjects.
