Table 3 Hazard ratios (HRs) for incident metabolic syndrome according to the fatty liver status at baseline and at follow-up

From: Change in fatty liver status and 5-year risk of incident metabolic syndrome: a retrospective cohort study

  HR [95 % CI]a
No fatty liver—no fatty liver (reference group) (n = 1344) Fatty liver—no fatty liver(resolved fatty liver) (n = 112) No fatty liver—fatty liver (incident fatty liver) (n = 251) Fatty liver—fatty liver (persisting fatty liver) (n = 382)
Model 1 1 3.05 [1.47–6.36] 5.34 [3.29–8.65] 7.34 [4.77–11.28]
Model 2 1 3.10 [1.48–6.47] 5.31 [3.27–8.63] 7.42 [4.80–11.47]
Model 3 1 1.29 [0.60–2.80] 3.31 [1.99–5.51] 2.60 [1.61–4.20]
  1. Model 1: adjusted for age and sex; model 2: adjusted for model 1 plus alcohol, smoking status, and exercise; model 3: adjusted for model 2 plus glucose, waist circumference, systolic blood pressure, triglyceride, and HDL-C
  2. aLogistic regression was used to determine hazard ratio (HR) for developing metabolic syndrome at follow-up
