*Estimates (95% confidence interval). Values are based on multiple linear regression models for complex survey design with adjustment for education, household income, alcohol intake, smoking, physical activity, resistance exercise, abdominal obesity, elevated fasting glucose, high triglycerides, low high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, elevated blood pressure, and estimated glomerular filtration rates.
