Table 5 Areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves for HDL-C, LDL-C, and LDL:HDL ratio in identifying prediabetes

From: Association of LDL:HDL ratio with prediabetes risk: a longitudinal observational study based on Chinese adults

  AUROC 95% confidence interval Best threshold Specificity Sensitivity
HDL-C 0.5392* 0.5339–0.5446 1.3750 0.4769 0.5782
LDL-C 0.5500* 0.5446–0.5554 2.7550 0.5590 0.5139
LDL:HDL ratio 0.5715 0.5663–0.5767 1.8759 0.4552 0.6601
