  • a The adjusted r2 of the model was 0.20. Age was dichotomized according to the median value. Inflammation was defined as CRP >10 mg/L.

  • b The adjusted r2 of the model was 0.10. Age was dichotomized according to the median value. Inflammation was defined as CRP >10 mg/L, and an increased BMI was defined according to the 66th percentile of our sample distribution.
