**Figure 1.** **Acyl-carnitines and cardiovascular function.** (**A**) Archived Acyl-carnitine and impaired myocardial relaxation. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted hazard ratios (HR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (**B**) Change in Acyl-carnitine and impaired myocardial relaxation. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted odds ratios (OR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (**C**) Archived Acyl-carnitine and impaired left atrial conduit strain. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted hazard ratios (HR) for one-unit increase in archived acylcarnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (**D**) Change in Acyl-carnitine and impaired left atrial conduit strain. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted odds ratios (OR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation.
