  1. Note: To convert serum cholesterol in mmol/L to mg/dL, multiply by 38.67; serum triglycerides in mmol/L to mg/dL, multiply by 88.545; serum uric acid in μmol/L to mg/dL, multiply by 0.01681.
  2. Abbreviations: HDL, high-desity lipoprotein; PP, pulse pressure; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate.; IMT, intima-media thickness.
