  1. Adjusting for age, cohort, body mass index, FPG, total serum cholesterol, smoking status and hypertension status, and sex when men and women combined. CHD, coronary heart disease; 95% CI, 95% confidence interval; FPG, fasting plasma glucose; Group I, 2hPG ≤ FPG; Group II, 2hPG > FPG; 2hPG, 2-hour plasma glucose; 2hPG-FPG, the difference between 2hPG and FPG; HR, hazard ratio; IS, ischemic stroke.
