statistical test request

Dear friends,

 

I have three outcomes in my longitudinal study, I have together 265 participants 

 

Metabolic syndrome group (MUG) 81

Metabolically healthy overweight (MHO) 52

Metabolically healthy Normal weight (MHNW) 132

 

all these groups are categorized

 

Now I need to compare their anthropometric measurements, biochemical and fatty acids ( all continuous variables)

Please help.

[ Edited ]

the first thing that comes to my mind is analysis of variance (PROC GLM in SAS)

 

Of course, that assumes you want to compare the means in each group, and nowhere did you say that is what you wanted to do.

There are plenty of examples in the SAS documentation. For example:

Dear all, thank you. I used the Kruskal-Wallis test. I am sorry for the delay. 

 

Very kind regards
