    * Complete data were available from 679 patients. Variables included in the model were sex, duration of diabetes, BMI, HbA1c, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, current smoking, antihypertensive medication, and NPY Leu7Leu vs. Pro7/− polymorphism. R2 = 0.69.

  • Complete data were available from 957 patients. Variables included in the model were sex, age, HbA1c, LDL cholesterol, waist-to-hip ratio, current smoking, antihypertensive medication, and NPY Leu7Leu vs. Pro7/− polymorphism. R2 = 0.14.
