Model 1 was unadjusted and model 2 was adjusted for age, marital status, education, occupation, smoking, drinking status, and physical activity.A significance level of P ≤ 0.05 was used for all analyses, and SPSS 24 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY, USA) software was used to analyze the data.
The objective of the study was to determine the association of dietary patterns, anthropometric measurements, and metabolic parameters with inflammatory markers in middle-aged and older adults with metabolic syndrome in Taiwan.
A total of 26,016 subjects aged ≥35 y with metabolic syndrome were recruited from Mei Jau institution between 20 for a cross sectional study.
Chi-square test and general linear model test were used to determine the differences of categorical and continuous variables, respectively, in the characteristics of the subjects with low or high CRP and NLR levels.
Odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence interval were derived using multivariate logistic regression analysis to compare the association of dietary patterns, anthropometric status, and metabolic parameters with CRP and NLR levels in men and women.
Body fat, skinfold thickness, and other measures of abdominal adiposity were also positively correlated with inflammation [13, 14].
Furthermore, metabolic disorders might interfere with inflammatory status.
Data collected included demographic data, lifestyle, diet, anthropometric data, biochemical parameters, and other health related data from the individuals who came to their health screening centers for a regular health check-up .
A total of 60,769 individuals with age ≥ 35 y met criteria of metabolic syndrome from the MJ database between 20.
High systolic or diastolic blood pressure (BP), low high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C), high low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), high total cholesterol (TC), high serum triglycerides (TG), and high fasting blood glucose (FBG) were significantly correlated with increased odds ratios of high CRP in both genders.
Low HDL-C, high LDL-C, high serum TG, and high FBG were significantly associated with increased odds ratios of high NLR in both genders.
