On the basis of a frequency of ferritin [greater than or equal to]200 [micro]g/L of 16% overall, 26% in men, and 6% in women, and on multifactorially adjusted HRs of 1.1, 1.1, and 1.2, respectively, for total mortality, the corresponding population attributable risks for total mortality were 2% overall, 3% in men, and 1% in women.
Multifactorially adjusted HRs for individuals with ferritin [greater than or equal to]200 vs <200 [micro]g/L were 1.2 (95% CI 1.1-1.3; P = 0.005) for cancer mortality, 1.4 (1.1-1.8; P = 0.002) for endocrinological mortality, and 1.2 (1.1-1.3; P = 0.00006) for cardiovascular mortality (Fig.

Risk of early death was increased by 10% [hazard ratios were multifactorially adjusted for sex, age (deciles), and smoking habits (never/previous/current smokers), body mass index, alcohol consumption, plasma cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, physical activity, CRP, and earlier diseases at the time of blood sampling] in participants with cardiovascular disease for plasma YKL-40 concentrations in category 34%-66%, by 20% for 67%-90%, by 80% for 91%-95%, and by 60% for 96%-100% vs YKL-40 category 0%-33% (trend, P < 0.0001).
