  • PC data show % mediation of the HbA1c effect relative to model 1. A “mean” covariate refers to a time-dependent covariate with value equal to the updated weighted mean of the covariate preceding the time of a CVD or MACE event. Other values are the current or most recent value for the covariate preceding the time of an event. LDLc, LDL cholesterol; LL, 95% lower limit; PC, percent change in the risk associated with 1% higher mean HbA1c in each model relative to model 1; Trig, triglycerides; UL, 95% upper limit.
