  1. Values reported are means or percentages % with 95% CI. Hypertension was defined as systolic BP > 140 mmHg and/or diastolic BP > 90 mmHg and/or antihypertensive treatment. Reduced glucose tolerance included any of IFG, IGT or DM. Referents were matched with cases based on age, sex and (if available) smoking status
