  1. For girls, the adjusted models for CRP, IL-6, TGF-α and TRANCE included the following covariates: smoking, physical activity and chronic disease
  2. The adjusted TWEAK model included the following covariates: smoking, snuffing tobacco, physical activity and chronic disease
  3. For boys, adjusted model for all inflammatory markers included the following covariates: physical activity, sleep and chronic disease
