  • Model 1: univariate analyses for year 2006 vs 1996, increase of one unit BMI or WC (BMI: 1 kg/m2; WC: 1 cm).

  • Model 2: further adjusting for age, cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking, puberty status and year trend.

  • *Hypercholesterolaemia is taken as cholesterol greater than or equal to the 90th centile of age-specific, gender-specific and height-specific strata.

  • †Hypertriglyceridaemia is taken as serum triglyceride greater than or equal to the 95th centile of age-specific, gender-specific and height-specific strata.

  • ‡Low HDL dyslipidaemia is taken as serum HDL-C of age-specific, gender-specific and height-specific strata.

  • §Dyslipidaemia is taken as serum cholesterol, TGs, HDL-C of age-specific, gender-specific and height-specific strata.

  • BMI, body mass index; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; HDL-C, HDL-cholesterol; TGs, triglycerides; WC, waist circumference.
