  1. MetS metabolic syndrome, baPWV brachial ankle pulse wave velocity
  2. Model 1: unadjusted
  3. Model 2: adjusted for age and gender
  4. Model 3: adjusted for age, gender, level of education, income, smoking, alcohol abuse, and amount of physical activity
  5. Model 4: adjusted for age, gender, level of education, income, smoking, alcohol abuse, amount of physical activity, body mass index, and serum concentrations of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein
