  • Four different multiple linear regression models were used to analyse the associations of adiposity measures with CAVI and baPWV.Adjusted for age (years), gender (0=male and 1=female), systolic blood pressure, smoking (0=no and 1=yes), atherogenic index, HbA1c and METs/min/week.baPWV, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity; BMI, body mass index; BRI, body roundness index; CAVI, cardio-ankle vascular index; CUN-BAE, Clínica Universidad de Navarra-body adiposity estimator; METs-min/week, metabolic equivalent min per week; WHtR, waist-to-height ratio.
