Table 2 Odds ratios (OR) for SU quartiles and for being CAC-positive, CIMT-positive, and plaque-positive, stratified by sex. Data shown are for univariable and multivariable logistic regressions, with adjustments for age, smoking, BMI, diabetes, dyslipidemia, eGFR, hypertension, hs-CRP, physical activity, and education level
