From: Prevalence, incidence and characteristics of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a cohort of Mexican Mestizo early rheumatoid arthritis patients treated with conventional disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs: the complex relationship between MetS and disease activity

  Model 1 (parsimonious) Model 2 Model 3
DAS28 at baseline 0.44, 023 to 0.85 0.50, 0.21 to 0.85 0.42, 0.21 to 0.85
Incidental MetS 0.23, 0.05 to 1.00 0.18, 0.04 to 0.89 0.23, 0.05 to 1.09
Disease duration at baseline   1.28, 0.94 to 1.74 1.26, 0.93 to 1.70
