  • Data are OR (95% CI). Model 1 adjusts for age, sex, and race/ethnicity. Model 2 adjusts for covariates in model 1, diabetes duration, and A1C. Model 3 adjusts for covariates in models 1 and 2, and presence of hypertension, systolic blood pressure, and use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers.
