Table 2 Frequency (%) of MetS and its components according to tertiles of light-intensity lifestyle activity and sedentary time in daily life

From: Objectively measured light-intensity lifestyle activity and sedentary time are independently associated with metabolic syndrome: a cross-sectional study of Japanese adults

  Light-intensity lifestyle activity (METs-h/day)  
  <11.1 METs-h/day (n = 161) 11.2–14.5 METs-h/day (n = 161) ≥14.6 METs-h/day (n = 161) P-value for trend
MetS (%) 34.8 19.3 15.5 0.001
Abdominal obesity (%) 67.7 46.3 43.1 <0.001
Hypertension (%) 51.6 50.3 48.3 0.641
Hyperglycemia (%) 26.9 19.3 22.4 0.449
Dyslipidemia (%) 33.5 20.5 10.6 < 0.001
  Sedentary time (h/day)  
  < 3.5 h/day (n = 161) 3.5–5.3 h/day (n = 161) ≥ 5.4 h/day (n = 161) P -value for trend
MetS (%) 15.5 20.3 34.4 0.002
Abdominal obesity (%) 41.6 54.1 61.9 0.004
Hypertension (%) 48.2 53.8 48.4 0.977
Hyperglycemia (%) 22.6 20.3 25.6 0.613
Dyslipidemia (%) 10.7 19.0 35.7 <0.001
  1. Values are percentages. P-value for trend were calculated using the Cochran-Armitage Test. MetS, metabolic syndrome; MET, metabolic equivalent. Abdominal obesity: waist circumference ≥ 85 cm in men, ≥ 90 cm in women; hypertension: systolic blood pressure ≥ 130 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥ 85 mmHg; hyperglycemia: blood glucose ≥ 110 mg/dL; dyslipidemia: triglyceride ≥ 150 mg/dL and/or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level < 40 mg/dL.
