Table 2 The association between lipid ratios and the number of metabolic syndrome components

From: Clinical usefulness of lipid ratios to identify men and women with metabolic syndrome: a cross-sectional study

  Men Women
Exp (B (95% CI) Exp (B) (95% CI)
TC/HDL-C 1.262 (1.197, 1.330) 1.278 (1.204, 1.355)
ln_TG/HDL-C 1.875 (1.680, 2.092) 1.797 (1.603, 2.016)
LDL-C/HDL-C 1.236 (1.147, 1.332) 1.358 (1.243, 1.483)
ln_nonHDL-C/HDL-C 2.861 (2.258, 3.626) 2.633 (2.109, 3.286)
  1. All Poisson regression models adjusted for age, ethnicity, smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, family history of cardiovascular disease, and BMI. Models for women additionally adjusted for menopause status. All models significant at p < 0.001. TC/HDL-C – ratio of total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, TG/HDL-C – ratio of triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, nonHDL-C/HDL – ratio of non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C/HDL-C – ratio of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
