    ..Our goals were to use confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to delineate differential contributions to MetS by sub-group, and if contributions were discovered, develop sex and racial/ethnic-specific equations to calculate MetS severity...

    Mark D DeBoer
    Department of Pediatrics, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA
    Pediatrics 132:e718-26. 2013
    ..Our hypothesis was that IR would be a better predictor of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) elevations than is MetS among non-Hispanic blacks...
