  1. HbA1c: hemoglobin A1c, HDL: high-density lipoprotein, ChE: cholinesterase. Data are presented as the single linear regression coefficients (p value) in Model 1, the age- and gender-adjusted linear regression coefficients (p value) in Model 2 and the age-, gender- and body mass index-adjusted linear regression coefficients (p value) in Model 3, respectively. Triglyceride and aspirin esterase were log-transformed because of their skewed distribution in the single and multiple linear regression analyses. Significance level: * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01.
