Model 1: only baseline determinants were entered into the model. The metabolic syndrome components and gender were kept in the model, regardless of their p-value.

Model 2: both baseline and follow-up determinants were entered into the model. The metabolic syndrome components and gender were kept in the model, regardless of their p-value.

a Odds ratio per one-unit change.

b Odds ratio per standard deviation increase.
