Table 4 Associations between light-intensity activity and the prevalence of MetS and its components

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 activity category  
Outcomes <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 1 (Reference) 0.51 (0.29 to 0.89)* 0.44 (0.24 to 0.81)* 0.012
Abdominal obesity 1 (Reference) 0.46 (0.28 to 0.76)* 0.50 (0.30 to 0.84)* 0.005
Hypertension 1 (Reference) 0.98 (0.61 to 1.58) 0.97 (0.59 to 1.60) 0.993
Hyperglycemia 1 (Reference) 0.68 (0.38 to 1.23) 0.94 (0.51 to 1.72) 0.394
Dyslipidemia 1 (Reference) 0.68 (0.39 to 1.17) 0.39 (0.20 to 0.74)* 0.016
  1. *P < 0.05; adjusted for age, sex, smoking status, calorie intake, accelerometer wear time and moderate–vigorous intensity physical activity. OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; MetS, metabolic syndrome; MET, metabolic equivalent. Abdominal obesity: waist circumference ≥ 85 cm in men and ≥ 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.
