Table 3 Equations for New Sex and Race/Ethnic-Specific Childhood Metabolic Syndrome Risk Z-Score

From: A confirmatory factor analysis of the metabolic syndrome in adolescents: an examination of sex and racial/ethnic differences

Males                  
  Non-Hispanic White = −4.9310 + 0.2804 * BMI Z-score = 0.0257 * HDL + 0.0189 * SBP + 0.6240 * ln(Tri) + 0.0140 * Glu
  Non-Hispanic Black = −4.7544 + 0.2401 * BMI Z-score = 0.0284 * HDL + 0.0134 * SBP + 0.6773 * ln(Tri) + 0.0179 * Glu
  Hispanic = −3.2971 + 0.2930 * BMI Z-score = 0.0315 * HDL + 0.0109 * SBP + 0.6137 * ln(Tri) + 0.0095 * Glu
Females                  
  Non-Hispanic White = −4.3757 + 0.4849 * BMI Z-score = 0.0176 * HDL + 0.0257 * SBP + 0.3172 * ln(Tri) + 0.0083 * Glu
  Non-Hispanic Black = −3.7145 + 0.5136 * BMI Z-score = 0.0190 * HDL + 0.0131 * SBP + 0.4442 * ln(Tri) + 0.0108 * Glu
  Hispanic = −4.7637 + 0.3520 * BMI Z-score = 0.0263 * HDL + 0.0152 * SBP + 0.6910 * ln(Tri) + 0.0133 * Glu
