Table 5 Multiple Logistic Regression between Anthropometric Indices and CVD Risk Factors

From: Association between anthropometric measures and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in Hainan centenarians: investigation based on the Centenarian’s health study

  1. Factors in Female Centenarians
  2. The prevalence of hypertension, high level of TC, TG, LDL-C and low level of HDL-C were demonstrated according to anthropometric indices (BMI, WC, WHR, WHtR)
  3. The cut-off points for dyslipidemia were plasma TC ≥ 240 mg/dl and/or use of medications to lower blood cholesterol for high TC, TG ≥ 200 mg/dl for high TG, HDL-C<40 mg/dl for low HDL-C, and LDL-C ≥ 160 mg/dl and/or use of medications to lower blood cholesterol for high LDL-C
  4. According to the level of anthropometric indices, two-class classification was used for grouping (BMI (>17.5 VS ≤ 17.5), WC (>80 VS ≤ 80), WHR (>0.8 VS ≤ 0.8), WHtR (>0.6 VS ≤ 0.6))
  5. The odds ratios were presented as unadjusted and further adjusted for age, illiterate, windowed, Han nationality, smoker, alcohol drinker, tea drinker and No. of children
  6. aA very few centenarian with concentration of TG higher than 200 mg/dl in WHR ≤ 0.8 group thus the data showed infinity in this column
  7. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01
