  2. bUnknown need status was given for each domain due to the user’s refusal to discuss the domain and it was statistically treated as No need (for further details, please consult www.researchintorecovery.com)
  3. cIndicates the difference for each possible answer (no need, met and unmet need) between patients with and without MetS. For example, for “6.Physical health”, the value -18.1% indicates that there are18.1% fewer of patients with no needs in the group with MetS than in the group without MetS
