  1. Estimated change (regression coefficient B and 95 % confidence interval) in various components of metabolic syndrome (WC, TG, HDL, blood pressure, S-glucose) as the dependent variable, by an increasing consumption of lean fish (0–1 times per month, 2–3 times per month, 1–3 times per week, 4–6 times per week, 1–2 times per day). The Tromsø Study: Tromsø 6
  2. WC Waist circumference, S-TG S-Triglycerides, HDL-C High Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol, SBP Systolic blood pressure, DBP Diastolic blood pressure
  3. aSerum glucose measured in Tromsø 6 was non-fasting
