Dyslipidemia is a chronic vascular disease that is difficult to diagnose without medical examination. There is a growing need to recognize and prevent dyslipidemia. Therefore, this study constructed the nomogram using logistic regression model and naive Bayesian classifier model to predict dyslipidemia. Furthermore, we compare the two nomograms. The data were used for adults over 20 years of age in the data of the Korean national health and nutrition examination survey for 2013-2016. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves and calibration plots were used to verify the two nomograms. Finally, we compared the logistic nomogram with the Bayesian nomogram and presented their opinions. The left-aligned method was applied to Bayesian nomograms to facilitate comparison of two nomograms.
