  1. BMI, body mass index; HDL, high density lipoprotein; LDL, low density lipoprotein; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; β, standardized regression coefficient; SE(β), standard error of the standardized regression coefficient. Correlation between the continuous variable and TB level was made by Pearson’s method; correlation between the discrete variable and TB level was made by Spearman’s method; Multivariate regression model: αin = 0.05, αout = 0.10, R2 = 0.261.
