Trajectories of Metabolic Syndrome Development in Young Adults

Figure 2

Group-based trajectory of MetS development based on the number of components attained over a 20-year span.

Trajectories were determined by PROC TRAJ censored normal modelling in 3 804 apparently healthy young adults. Four trajectories were observed and denoted as No MetS (No MetS: n = 906), Low MetS (n = 1 273), Moderate MetS (n = 1 342), and High MetS (High MetS: n = 283).
