  1. Dependent variable: “metabolic syndrome X without cardiac syndrome X”
  2. Independent variables: components of metabolic syndrome, adipokines, insulin-resistance index, smoking status, age, gender
  3. CI confidence interval, HDL-C high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) index of insulin-resistance = (fasting glucose mg/dL × fasting insulin μU/mL)/405, OR odds ratio
