Measures CVD biomarkers During a medical examination, fasting blood samples were collected from participants to measure CVD risk factors including plasma glucose (mg/dl), triglycerides (mg/dl), and HDL-C (mg/dl).

If systolic BP differed by ≥10 mm Hg or diastolic BP by ≥6 mm Hg, a third measurement was taken. The average of the 3 BP readings were used in analyses. Clinic BP Clinic BP
