  1. Pearson’s correlation analysis was performed between both baseline and change anthropometric data. The r represents the Pearson’s correlation coefficient and the p represents the corresponding P-value.
  2. Significant correlations are denoted by bolded, italicized r and P-values.
  3. Nonsignificant, tendency toward significance defined as 0.05>P<0.1 is indicated by ‘*’.
