From: Association of insulin resistance, from mid-life to late-life, with aortic stiffness in late-life: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study

Fig. 2

Cross-sectional association of insulin resistance indexes with high aortic stiffness in adults ages 67–90. HOMA-IR homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance, TG/HDL-C triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio, TyG triglyceride and glucose index, cfPWV carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity. The odds ratio and 95% CI are interpreted as the odds of high (> 75th percentile), vs. non-high, aortic stiffness per standard deviation increment in insulin resistance index. The test for interaction is the p-value for the product term of insulin resistance index, that has been standardized, and gender. Estimates are adjusted for age, gender (except for gender-specific estimates), and race/study-site. The standard deviation was 1.6 for HOMA-IR, 1.3 for TG/HDL-C, and 0.4 for TyG
