Cox regression analyses of event free survival in relation to leptin levels. The dashed line represents the lower tertile and solid line the higher tertile of leptin levels in men (a) hazard ratio 9.219, confidence interval from 2.088 to 40.705, p = 0.003 and women (b) hazard ratio 26.8 confidence interval from 0.432 to 1662, p = 0.118. Data are adjusted for age, known duration of diabetes, HbA1c, systolic blood pressure, smoking, LDL/HDL- ratio, BMI, carotid-femoral PWV and carotid IMT.
