  1. β, standardized coefficients; B, unstandardized coefficients; baPWV, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity; CeO, central obesity; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; MetS, metabolic syndrome; SE, standard error.
  2. “Other MetS components” refer to the dichotomous variables of HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and fasting glucose according to the NCEP–ATP III criteria.
  3. Model 1: Unadjusted.
  4. Model 2: Adjusted for age.
  5. Model 3: Adjusted for age and male gender.
  6. Model 4: Adjusted for age, male gender, and smoking.
  7. Model 5: Adjusted for age, male gender, smoking, and heart rate.
  8. Model 6: Adjusted for age, male gender, smoking, heart rate, and serum creatinine.
  9. Model 7: Adjusted for age, male gender, smoking, heart rate, serum creatinine, and number of MetS components.
  10. Model 8: Adjusted for age, male gender, smoking, heart rate, serum creatinine, number of MetS components, and other MetS components.
