From: Association of insulin resistance, from mid-life to late-life, with aortic stiffness in late-life: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study

Fig. 3

Association of high aortic stiffness and change in insulin resistance indexes in adults ages 67–90. HOMA-IR homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance, TG/HDL-C triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio, TyG triglyceride and glucose index, P75 75th percentile. The annual rate of change and 95% CI are interpreted as the change in log-transformed insulin resistance index per year. The test for interaction is the p-value of the product term of time in study and high (> 75th percentile) aortic stiffness. Estimates are adjusted for age, gender, and race/study-site. Time in study was the time from Visit 1 to Visit 4 or Visit 5
