  1. Abbreviations: Ln(LV mass index), natural logarithm of the left ventricular mass index; DM, diabetes mellitus; HTN, hypertension; hsCRP, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; EpF, epicardial fat. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were estimated by logistic regression. Models 2–6 adjust for age, DM, HTN, Ln(LDL), and Ln(LV mass index). Model 4 and model 5 additionally adjust for hsCRP. Model 6 additionally adjusts for hsCRP and adiposity components. *, p < 0.05.
