From: Microalbuminuria in relation to the metabolic syndrome and its components in a Chinese population

The metabolic syndrome component Number (Prevalence, %) Adjusted odds ratio (95% CI)* P value
Central obesity 248 (33.2) 1.53 (0.47-5.03) 0.48
Elevated blood pressure 193 (25.8) 2.20 (0.90-5.40) 0.08

The metabolic syndrome 64 (8.6) 5.13 (1.96-13.45) 0.001
  1. CI, confidence interval; HDL, high density lipoprotein.
  2. * Adjusted for sex, age, body mass index, current smoking, current alcoholic intake and use of antihypertensive drugs (except for analyses on elevated blood pressure and in subjects not taking antihypertensive medication) and additionally for the other components of the metabolic syndrome (except for analyses on the metabolic syndrome).
