  1. * test for 7 models, p = 0.08
  2. ** test for 7 models, p = 0.009
  3. The base model included: age, gender, body mass index, smoking, drinking and exercise, LDL cholesterol, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, uric acid, fasting glucose levels and total fat amount in plasma
  4. AUC: area under the ROC curve; CI: confidence interval
