Normal eGFR, eGFR≥60 mL/min/1.73 m2; Decreased eGFR, eGFR<60 mL/min/1.73 m2; Normal uACR, uACR<30 mg/g; Elevated uACR, uACR≥30 mg/g.

Model 1 [Mean±SE (95% CI)], adjusted for age and gender; Model 2 [Mean±SE (95% CI)], Model 1 further adjusted for smoking, drinking, regular exercising, SBP, DBP, BMI, and WM; Model 3 [Mean±SE (95% CI)], Model 2 further adjusted for WBC, AST, and ALT; Model 4 [Mean±SE (95% CI)], Model 3 further adjusted for TC, TGs, HDL-C, and FBG.
