  1. HRs with 95% CIs of IHD, in age-adjusted models and full models in relation to categories of TC/HDL-C and non-HDL-C (in italics), n = 6537; IHD = 551
  2. IHD ischemic heart disease, TC/HDL-C total cholesterol/high density lipoprotein cholesterol, non-HDL-C total-cholesterol minus HDL-C, HR hazard ratio, CI confidence interval
  3. *Adjusted for all included variables: age, also waist hip ratio, smoking, exercise, diabetes mellitus type 2 and blood pressure. p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant
