Once the program analyzed the subclusters and the characteristics of each BMI category (as described previously), the subjects were categorized in 6 phenotypes: HNW, MONW, healthy and metabolically disturbed overweight, MDO, and MHO.
Using all the information obtained from the clusters, six phenotypes were generated: HNW (28.29%), MONW (3.36%), Healthy Overweight (28.08%), Metabolically disturbed Overweight (7.47%), MHO (11.20%), and MDO (21.60%) (Table 5); note that MONW and MHO subjects represent 14.56% of the total sample.
COR Curves Construction without MONW and MHO Groups (4 Groups).
COR Curves Construction Excluding MONW, MHO, and Overweight Groups (2 Groups).
On this reasoning, 6 phenotypes were constructed: Healthy Normal-Weight, MONW, Healthy and Metabolically Disturbed Overweight, MHO, and Metabolically Disturbed Obese.
Exclusion of the MONW and MHO categories impedes the use of false data to determine a cut-off point, rendering enough sensitivity and specificity to identify subjects at risk.
In a study comprising of 5267 participants (2227 men, 3040 women) from the 3rd Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the MONW phenotype was observed in 8.7% of total subjects and 12.7% of normal-weight subjects.I11!
In the present study, one third of MONW individuals had normal waist circumference values.
In Group-I, there were 43.5% of individuals who were metabolically obese (MONW).
