  • Data are presented as mean (SEM) for age, TC, HDL, and SBP and percentage for the female, use of antihypertensive medications, and current smoker categories.

  • Data from DPP baseline were collected on or before randomization, while data from DPPOS baseline reflect the first assessment in the DPPOS (e.g., DPPOS year 1).
