Figure 3. Association between UA and baPWV. A linear relationship between UA and baPWV was detected after adjusting for age, BMI, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, gamma-GTP, creatinine, fasting glucose, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, smoking status, and antihypertensive drugs. Solid lines represent the fitting curve, and dotted lines represent the corresponding 95% CI.
