Table 3 Anthropometry and biochemical results related to the metabolic syndrome

From: Establishing post mortem criteria for the metabolic syndrome: an autopsy based cross-sectional study

Metabolic syndrome criteria Men Women N (male/female) P value
Waist circumference (cm), converted 97.3 (95.3; 99.3) 94.2 (91.3; 97.0) 443 (272/171) 0.08
Triglycerides (mmol/L)a 2.90 (2.60; 3.40) 3.00 (2.60; 3.45) 308 (185/123) 0.39
Total cholesterol (mmol/L)a 3.00 (< 3.00; 3.20) 3.10 (< 3.00; 3.2) 216 (90/126) 0.11
Albumin/creatinine ratiob 16.36 (7.88; 49.91) 22.35 (12.02; 67.59) 248 (75/173) 0.11
Glycated haemoglobin (mmol/mol)a 32 (29; 36) 33 (29; 37) 364 (140/224) 0.67
  1. The lower quantification limits for triglycerides was 0.8 mmol/L and it was 3.00 mmol/L for total cholesterol. The upper quantification limit for total cholesterol was 6.8 mmol/L. Not all blood samples could be analysed for triglycerides or cholesterol. The waist circumference is expressed as mean (95% CI). The remaining values are expressed as median (interquartile range). Adjusting for age did not affect the results
