  1. *Data are given as odds ratio (95% confidence intervals) by logistic regression analysis.
  2. † Multivaiate data are adjusted by age, BMI, Triglyceride, systolic BP, GGT, ALT, smoking status and alcohol intake.
  3. LMCA fat: left main coronary artery fat distance measured by low dose chest CT; 95% CI:95% confidence intervals; BMI: body mass index; WC: waist circumference; BP: blood pressure; GGT: gamma galutamyl transferase; ALT: alanine aminotransferase.
