  1. Odds ratio and 95% CI increase in plaque quantity for 1 pM of total GLP-1 raise in plasma levels are presented.
  2. Abbreviations: LDL (low density cholesterol), CRP (hsCRP), TG (triglyceride), eGFR (estimate glomerular filtration rate), log. Logarithmic.
  3. Bold numbers indicate significant associations with p < 0.05.
