  • a Fully adjusted model included the following baseline variables (covariates in italics contributed significantly to the overall model): Age, race, gender, level of education, prevalent CHD in the overall model, SBP, antihypertensive medication, diabetes, smoking, BMI, LDL and HDL cholesterol, serum albumin, anemia, and carotid atherosclerosis.

  • b A total of 302 individuals in the “All” group were missing information on prevalent CHD at baseline.

  • c P < 0.05.
