  1. Shown are the numbers of subjects, the percentages of subjects, the means with standard deviations for each variable, and the medians with 25th and 75th percentile values indicated in parentheses for each variable. BP Blood pressure, TG/HDL-C ratio The ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol. Drinkers include both occasional and regular drinkers. p values for differences between men and women are also shown
