  1. a Adjusted for age, ethnocultural group, smoking status, and physical activity level.
  2. b Concordance statistics from identical models for BMI and WC
  3. c WC and BMI treated as standardized continuous variables.
  4. d High TG and TC:HDL cholesterol defined as the highest quartile, with quartiles 1-3 serving as reference group.
  5. WC - Waist circumference (cm)
  6. TG - Triglycerides (mmol/L).
