From: The association between serum alanine aminotransferase and hypertension: A national based cross-sectional analysis among over 21 million Chinese adults

  1. ALT: alanine aminotransferase; OR: odds ratios; CI: confidence interval;
  2. *Adjusted for age, sex, ethnicity, area, education, body mass index, average salt consumption, history of diabetes, overall pressure and hepatitis B surface antigen status;
  3. P for trend were calculated by set categorized ALT levels as a continuous variable
