  • a Data are expressed as unstandardized regression coefficients β and their 95% CI. β coefficients represent the change in stiffness per 5-ml/min per 1.73 m2 decrease in eGFR. GTS indicates glucose tolerance status; MA, microalbuminuria in quartiles; MAP, mean arterial pressure; BMI, body mass index.
