  1. Bivariate and partial correlations (r) between serum 25-OHD levels and cardiometabolic risk factors were examined using Pearson’s coefficients, with controlling for age, gender, ethnicity and season of 25-OHD blood sampling. The *values represent the significant difference with p <0.05, **with p < 0.01 and ***with p < 0.001
