The triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index was adjusted for age, TSH, FT3, FT4, ALB, ALT, GGT, HDL, and UA. TyG – triglyceride-glucose; FT3 – free triiodothyronine; ALB – albumin; GGT – glutamyl aminotransferase; HDL – high-density lipoprotein; TG – triglyceride total; FPG – fasting plasma glucose; OR – odds ratio; CI – confidence interval. Statistical significance was defined as
