  1. * Correlation between selected paired variables was analysis with spearman correlation.
  2. † Correlation between selected paired variables was analysis with partial correlation adjusted for age, gender, smoke, hypertension, positive family history and coronary artery disease status.
  3. Statistics for variables significantly associated with tHcy or tCys at P < 0.05 are shown in bold.
