  1. HDL cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
  2. a Based on logistic regression analysis.
  3. b Metabolic syndrome is defined as presence of at least 3 of the following criteria.
  4. Elevated waist circumference (≥88 cm), high fasting blood glucose (≥110 mg/dL), high triglycerides (≥150 mg/dL), low-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (<50 mg/dL), high blood pressure; systolic blood pressure (SBP ≥ 130 mm Hg) or diastolic blood pressure (DBP ≥85 mm Hg).
