  1. A comparison of FD prevalence between males and females (**p < 0.01) and among Sasang constitution types in male (αp = 0.389), female (*p < 0.05), and all subjects (βp = 0.055) obtained by Pearson’s Chi-square test. The sex-dependent difference in FD prevalence in terms of Sasang constitution (#p < 0.05) was shown via a two-way ANOVA test
