Model 1: crude; model 2: adjusted for age and sex; model 3: adjusted for significant clinical parameters including BMI, duration of diabetes, SBP, pulse pressure, heart rate, smoking, alcohol consumption, HbA1c, HDL cholesterol, hsCRP, insulin treatment, and RAS inhibitors; model 4: adjusted for ACR; ACR: albumin-to-creatinine ratio; baPWV: brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity; eGFR: estimated glomerular filtration rate.
