  1. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to perform the analysis after adjusting for age, sex and body mass index with total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-C, LDL-C, serum Hp level tertiles and carotid IMT as independent variables. β ± SE and P values are shown in table
  2. Non-DM non-diabetes mellitus, Asp aspartate, Glu glutamic acid, Phe phenylalanine, Hp haptoglobin, HDL-C high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, LDL-C low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, IMT intima-media thickness
  3. P values < 0.05 or approximately 0.05 are shown in italic
