Model one: not adjusted for other variables.
Model two: adjusted for age, sex, BMI, HbA1c, systolic BP, and log-transformed urinary albumin to creatinine ratio.
Model three: further adjusted for diabetes complications (coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease) and drug use (statins, other lipid lowering drugs, rennin-angiotensin system inhibitors, oral antidiabetes drugs only, glucagon-like peptide-1 based treatment, basal insulin based treatment, and premixed insulin based treatment).
