a CI, confidence interval.
b Each variable individually analyzed in linear model with age alone.
c Adjusted for baseline creatinine, HDL, AAI, major ECG abnormalities, age, race, weight, diabetes (none, impaired fasting glucose, diabetes), systolic BP, and pack-years smoking, without the other inflammatory or prothrombotic markers.
