  1. Model 1, adjusted for the variables of serum lipid levels including TC, TG, HDL-C, and LDL-C; Model 2, adjusted for the hyperlipidaemia variables including High-TC, High-TG, High-LDL-C and Low-LDL-C; Model 3, adjusted for the hyperlipidaemia variables including borderline High-TC, borderline High-TG and borderline High-LDL-C; Model 4, adjusted for the variables of lipoprotein ratios including TC/HDL-C, TG/HDL-C and LDL-C/HDL-C; Model 5, adjusted for the variables in model 1 plus the variables in model 2, model 3 and model 4
  2. OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval
