The ROC curves of HDL-C for high baPWV (≥1750 cm/sec) in the GGT1 G allele carriers (a) and non-carriers (b) in T2DM subjects. The HDL-C level at baseline was found to be a significant predictor of a high baPWV at the last point of follow-up only in G allele carriers. The optimal cut-off value for the HDL-C level for a high baPWV in G allele carriers was 1.1 mmol/L (sensitivity: 46.3%; specificity: 74.5%). AUC, area under the curve; CI, confidence interval; ROC, receiver operating characteristic; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; baPWV, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity; T2DM, type 2 diabetes mellitus.
