Continuous variables are presented with mean ± SD or median (25th, 75th percentile), and those with skewed distribution were log-transformed to approximate a normal distribution. Categorical variables are presented as percentages. The significance of differences in continuous variables between groups was analyzed using the Kruskal-Wallis H test. The chi-squared test was utilized to test differences in the distribution of categorical variables. Linear regression was used to evaluate the determinants of body composition in the patients with type 2 DM. All the variables in Table Table11 tested by univariate analysis and those variables with p value less than 0.05, age, and sex were selected in a multivariate linear regression analysis. Statistical analyses were conducted using SPSS version 18.0 for Windows (SPSS Inc., Chicago, Illinois) and graphs were drawn using Graph Pad Prism 5.0 (GraphPad Software Inc., San Diego CA, USA). Statistical significance was set at a two-sided p value of <0.05.
