In multiple stepwise regression analysis, TCSS, as dependent variable, and the other 8 variables, age, duration, BMI, CRP, UACR, UA, eGFR, and genomic DNA methylation, as independent variables, were included in the same model. Only three variables, duration, genomic DNA methylation, and eGFR, were the risk factors of TCSS ().
