  1. %FM: percent body fat mass; BMI: body mass index; WHR: waist-to-hip ratio; WC: waist circumference, AUC: area under curve.
  2. **: p < 0.01;
  3. a: AUC of ROC curve for %FM was significant larger than those for BMI, WHR, and WC
  4. §: Logistic regression adjusted for age, smoking, alcohol drinking and betel nut chewing
  5. &: Logistic regression adjusted for age, smoking, alcohol drinking, betel nut chewing, hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension and low HDL cholesterol.
