  • baseline
  • Results From 367 registers of interest, 218 participants were recruited to the programme with baseline mean (SD): age 53.6 (6) years, FINDRISC 13.9 (3.1), body mass index 33.5 (5.9) kg/m 2 , waist circumference 108.1 (13.7) cm, PA levels (self-report): daily total 49.1 (5.9) metabolic-equivalent (MET) h/day.

  • Prediction
  • When compared to men, women may manifest their clinical disease later in life, rendering standard risk prediction algorithms less reliable in women. (bio-medicine.org)
  • However, findings of the Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration's study showed that inclusion of BMI and waist circumference could only marginally compensate for the lack of information about total and HDL cholesterol in a risk-prediction model. (newsmax.com)
