  1. Values are mean ± SD, median with IQR (25th – 75th percentiles), or absolute number (%).
  2. * Logarithmic transformation was done for these variables due to skewed distribution.
  3. BMI = body mass index; CAD = coronary artery disease; DM = diabetes mellitus; FHx = family history; HDL-C = high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol; IQR = interquartile range; LDL-C = low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol.
