From: Triglyceride-glucose index is associated with symptomatic coronary artery disease in patients in secondary care

  1. Data are prevalence ratio (95% CI) based in Poisson regression
  2. Italic values show the presence of statistic significance
  3. Model 1: crude
  4. Model 2: adjusted by sex and age
  5. Model 3: adjusted by model 2, use of hypoglycemic, antihypertensive, anticoagulant, lipid-lowing agents, carbohydrate and lipids intake, stroke, peripheral artery disease, and the presence of any other stage of the disease
