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