Figure 2

Forest plot showing observational and instrumental variable estimates of the effect of standardized serum uric acid on MetS and its components in the Chinese cohort study. Observational: cox proportional hazards regression model without adjusting for confounding (age, baseline MetS components, and drug information); observational, adjust: cox proportional hazards regression model adjusting for confounding (age, baseline MetS components, and drug information); IV model: Mendelian randomization model.
