  1. aOdds ratio of having an incident bone marrow lesion for each unit increase in total cholesterol, natural logarithm (Ln) of triglycerides, natural logarithm of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or for the total/HDL ration after adjusting for age and body mass index. CI, confidence interval.
