*

Adjusted for age, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, physical activity, hypertension, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, fibrinogen, and the other glucose measurement;

P < 0.05, n = 2,034. Subjects taking medications for diabetes or with incomplete OGTT were excluded. A total of 358 deaths during follow-up, including 103 cardiovascular deaths.
