  • To convert the glucose in unit of mg/dl to the SI unit of mmol/l, multiply the number in the table by 0.0555.

  • *Variables are defined in Table 1.

  • P < 0.0001 vs. zero using random coefficient mixed-effects regression models. SI, AIRg, and DI were log transformed for statistical testing.
