Adjustments were made for body mass index, hyperlipidemia (Yes = 1; No = 0), diabetes mellitus (Yes = 1; No = 0), smoking habit (Yes = 1; No = 0), drinking habit (Yes = 1; No = 0), and change in morning systolic BP.
eGFR: estimated glomerular filtration rate. UACR: urinary albumin to creatinine ratio. BP: blood pressure. : determination coefficient.
