n = 33
Age (yr) 0.210 [0.031, 1.008] 0.110
Uric Acid (mg/dL) 65.751 [2.509,1723.076] 0.012
Gender 0.040 [0.001, 2.003] 0.107
BMI (kg/m2) 1.559 [0.764, 3.182] 0.223
  1. All the models were adjusted by gender (men compared with women), age (continuous), body mass index (continuous) and concentration of uric acid (continuous)
  2. *The unit of the exposures for the OR estimate was the presence or absence of Metabolic
  3. Syndrome or its components- abdominal obesity, high triglycerides and low HDL-C
