Table 4 Comparison of ROC models related to the cut-offs of TyG index for predicting subclinical CAD

From: Triglyceride glucose index is a useful marker for predicting subclinical coronary artery disease in the absence of traditional risk factors

ROC ModelsAUC (95% CI)
TyG index ≥8.440.580 (0.546–0.614)
TyG index ≥8.44 with age ≥ 65 years0.632 (0.596–0.667)*
TyG index ≥8.44 with age ≥ 65 years and male sex0.745 (0.714–0.776)*
  1. P-value of < 0.05 was considered significant
  2. AUC Area under the curve, CAD Coronary artery disease, CI Confidence interval, LDL-C Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, ROC Receiver operating characteristic
