Association between hand grip strength and stroke in China: a prospective cohort study

Cox regression of fully adjusted model for the cumulative risk of Stroke grouped by HGS. Fully adjusted model shows adjustments for age, gender, marriage status, education level and place of residence, smoking behavior, alcoholic intake, BMI, hypertension, glucose, total cholesterol and C-reactive protein. Abbreviations: 1. HGS: hand grip strength. 2. D-HGS: according to HGS status in 2011 and 2015, we classified all participants into four groups: normal/normal, weakness/normal, weakness/weakness and normal/weakness.
