Table 7 Odds ratios for diabetes in subjects with vs. subjects without a high TG/HDL-C ratio defined by conventional cut-off values and new cut-off values in men and women

From: Comparison of discrimination for cardio-metabolic risk by different cut-off values of the ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol

 Conventional cut-off value
Men, 3.75; women 3.00
New cut-off value
Men, 2.967; women, 2.237

  1. Odds ratios with their 95% confidence intervals in parentheses are shown. Asterisks denote significant differences (p < 0.01) from the reference level (1.00). In multivariate analyses, age and histories of smoking, alcohol drinking and regular exercise were used as other explanatory variables (Adjusted)
