  • Only subjects with no missing baseline risk factor data were included into the specific model. The score values were estimated based on the β coefficients of the logistic regression model and are presented for the full model. The concise model includes only these statistically significant variables. The full model includes also physical activity and fruit and vegetable consumption.

  • *

    * Question “Have you ever used drugs for high blood pressure?: No/Yes” in the questionnaire;

  • question “Have you ever been told by a health-care professional that you have diabetes or latent diabetes?: No/Latent diabetes/Diabetes” in the questionnaire;

  • individuals who, in their spare time, “read, watch TV, and work in the household with tasks that don’t strain physically” and whose “work is mainly done sitting and does not require much walking.” The next category was “physical activity at least 4 hours per week.”
