  1. Note: Analysis was performed to explore the independent factors linearly associated with plasma fibrinogen levels in a multiple linear regression model. F = 47.31, P <  0.001, R2 = 0.243, adjusted R2 = 0.237. Covariates for adjustment are listed in Additional file 1: Table S1, stepwise conditional adjustment. Hypersensitive C-reactive protein was log-transformed
  2. Abbreviations: BMI body mass index, LDL-C low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL-C high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, hs-CRP hypersensitive C-reactive protein
