  1. Model 1: unadjusted baseline variables. And the C statistic was 0.63 (95% CI 0.6–0.66)
  2. Model 2: adjusted for age and sex. And the C statistic was 0.64 (95% CI 0.61–0.66)
  3. Model 3: adjusted for age, sex, drinking, smoking, dietary habits, exercise, BMI, abdominal obesity, VAI, BUN, SCr, eGFR, dyslipidemia, MS, diabetes, hypertension, and use of antidyslipidemia medication. And the C statistic was 0.76 (95% CI 0.73–0.77)
