Comparison of “Traditional” vs. “New” MetS. A: Prevalence of MetS among adolescents from NHANES 1999–2010 based on a common pediatric adaptation of ATP-III MetS as compared to “New” MetS based on cutoff of new metabolic syndrome risk Z-score = 0.75. B and C: Sensitivity and specificity ATP-III MetS and “New” MetS in predicting adolescents with two or more elevations of MetS-associated risk markers (hsCRP, uric acid, and fasting insulin). NHW = Non-Hispanic White; NHB = Non-Hispanic Black; Hisp = Hispanic.

ROC Curves for New Sex and Race/Ethnic-Specific Childhood Metabolic Syndrome Risk Score. ROC curves and area under the curve (AUC) for childhood MetS Risk Score for non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black and Hispanic adolescent participants of NHANES in identifying A) “traditional” MetS (ATP III adaptation, Ford 2007) or elevations in B) C-reactive protein (CRP), C) uric acid, D) fasting insulin, or E) one or more elevations among CRP, uric acid or fasting insulin or F) two or more elevations in these 3 factors. * Elevated CRP = 4.5 or greater; ** Elevated Uric Acid = 5.5 for females; 7.0 for males; † Elevated Fasting Insulin = 16.
