Hb hemoglobin, TC total cholesterol, TG triglyceride, LDL low density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL high density lipoprotein cholesterol, HCT hematocrit, BUN blood urea nitrogen, CRP C-reactive protein. The β estimate and confidence interval (CI) was estimated using Linear regression model adjusting for the confounding effects of age, gender, BMI, educational attainment and presence of diabetes and myocardial infarction.* Indicates statistically significant values as P < 0.05
