Correlation of the IMT to the clinical parameters. The IMT positively correlated with age, duration of diabetes mellitus, and baPWV and negatively correlated with eGFR. The level of the eGFR that the IMT was equivalent to 1.1 mm was 41.3 mL/min/1.73 m2 according the formula of the correlation (y = -0.0025729x + 1.2064048).
