Figure 1. From: Effects of a 12-Month Physical Activity Intervention on Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome in Elderly Men and Women.

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome at baseline (raw values) and 6 and 12 months (values adjusted for gender, race, clinic site, diabetes, and baseline values) by intervention group. The trend of change was similar for the physical activity (PA) and successful aging (SA) interventions (p = .77 for visit by intervention interaction from generalized estimating equation model), and the prevalence was not different between PA and SA at follow-up visits (p = .74). The prevalence of MetS decreased significantly from baseline to 6 months (p = .003) but did not change further from 6 to 12 months (p = .11).

Figure 2. From: Effects of a 12-Month Physical Activity Intervention on Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome in Elderly Men and Women.

There was a significant interaction between study intervention and medication use (p = .042) for the prevalence of metabolic syndrome. In individuals not using any medication for treating MetS components, those in the physical activity (PA) group (n = 34, 27, and 31 at baseline, 6, and 12 months, respectively) had lower odds of having MetS than those in the successful aging (SA) group (n = 45, 39, and 39 baseline, 6, and 12 months, respectively; odds ratio = 0.28, 95% confidence interval = 0.08–0.96 from generalized estimating equation model) during the intervention period. Data were adjusted for gender, race, clinic site, diabetes, and baseline values.
