ROC curves of anthropometric parameters as indicators of metabolic syndrome. Left (men), right (women). The area under the ROC curve for the product of waist and neck circumference was larger than that for waist circumference in men and women (DeLong test, P < 0.01). Moreover, the area for waist circumference was greater than the body mass index and waist-to-hip ratio in men and women (DeLong test, both P < 0.01). Therefore, the product of waist and neck circumference outperformed traditional anthropometric indicators for identifying MetS in both sexes
