Table 3 Results of receiver-operating curve analyses featuring the thresholds of lipid ratios with their respective sensitivities and specificities for diagnosing metabolic syndrome in men and women

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

  Men Women
Lipid ratio Criterion value (Sensitivity, specificity) Criterion value (Sensitivity, specificity)
TG/HDL-C 1.62 (84.0%, 80.1%) 1.18 (70.2%, 88.2%)
TC/HDL-C 5.05 (73.1%, 71.6%) 3.91 (81.7%, 68.7%)
LDL-C/HDL-C* 3.79 (40.2%, 88.5%) 2.53 (67.6%, 74.8%)
nonHDL-C/HDL-C 4.05 (73.1%, 71.6%) 2.91 (79.8%, 70.9%)
  1. *According to the AUC, LDL-C/HDL-C showed to be a good marker of metabolic syndrome in women but not in men.
