All data presented as median (IQR), with P-values calculated using Mann-Whitney’s U test. CRP – C reactive protein; WBC – white blood cells; TSH – thyroid stimulating hormone; CK – creatinine kinase; ALT – alanine aminotransferase; AST – aspartate aminotransferase. Statistical significance denoted with bold text.
