The table shows the results of four multiple regression analyses in subjects with type 2 diabetes with CKD and those without CKD. The dependent variables were max-IMT (the left two columns) and mean-IMT (the right two columns). Values are standardized regression coefficients (). , coefficient of determination; ,  ; ,  . BMI, body mass index; BP, blood pressure; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin A1c; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; ARB/ACEI, prevalence of subjects treated with angiotensin II receptor antagonists or ACE inhibitors; statin, prevalence of subjects treated with stains; smoker, prevalence of current and past smokers; CTRP, C1q/TNF-related protein.
