  1. *r means pearson correlation coefficient.
  2. † P value was calculated by pearson correlation.
  3. LMCA fat: left main coronary artery fat distance measured by low dose chest CT; BMI: body mass index; WC: waist circumference; SBP: systolic blood pressure; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; AST: asparatate transaminase; ALT: alanine aminotransferase; GGT: gamma galutamyl transferase; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein cholesterol: LDL-C: low density lipoprotein; HBA1c: hemoglobin A1c.
