Table 1 Cardio-metabolic threshold values used to determine participant groupings into ‘low’ and ‘high’ endocrine concentration

From: The difference in sleep, sedentary behaviour, and physical activity between older adults with ‘healthy’ and ‘unhealthy’ cardiometabolic profiles: a cross-sectional compositional data analysis approach
