Table 3 Area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC) for identifying hyperuricemia with adiposity-based indices

From: Visceral adipose accumulation increased the risk of hyperuricemia among middle-aged and elderly adults: a population-based study

Variables AUROC Threshold Sensitivity Specificity P #
BMI (kg/m2) 0.568 (0.540–0.595) 25.2 58.3 53.8 0.0008
Waist circumference (cm) 0.558 (0.530–0.568) 81 89.2 21.4 0.0002
Neck circumference (cm) 0.522 (0.494–0.550) 34 65.2 41.2 < 0.0001
Visceral adiposity index 0.662 (0.636–0.688)* 2.74 55.8 68.2
Fatty liver index 0.621 (0.594–0.648)* 30 77.0 41.1 0.04
Lipid accumulation product 0.645 (0.618–0.671)* 71.0 45.6 77.1 0.14
  1. *The AUROC was statistically greater than that of BMI, waist circumference, neck circumference (all P values < 0.05). P# was calculated by using the method described by De Long. et al. comparing the AUROC of visceral adiposity index with the other adiposity-based indices
