Table 3 Multivariate linear regression for associations of adiposity categories with systolic blood pressure, fasting plasma glucose and total cholesterol

From: Estimating the proportion of metabolic health outcomes attributable to obesity: a cross-sectional exploration of body mass index and waist circumference combinations

  Adiposity categories
  BMIN/WCN Coefficient (Reference) BMIN/WCO Coefficient (95 % CI) BMIO/WCN Coefficient (95 % CI) BMIO/WCO Coefficient (95 % CI)
Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 0.0 3.0 (1.5, 4.6) 3.3 (−0.5, 7.0) 8.7 (7.4, 10.0)
Fasting glucose (mmol/l) 0.0 0.2 (0.1, 0.3) 0.2 (−0.0, 0.4) 0.6 (0.5, 0.7)
Total cholesterol (mmol/l) 0.0 0.2 (0.1, 0.3) 0.4 (0.1, 0.7) 0.3 (0.3, 0.4)
  1. Analyses were adjusted for age, sex, education, country of birth, TV viewing time, alcohol consumption and smoking status
  2. Adiposity categories: BMIN/WCN: non-obese BMI and WC; BMIN/WCO: non-obese BMI, obese WC; BMIO/WCN: obese BMI, non-obese WC; BMIO/WCO: obese BMI and WC
