  • CI = confidence interval.

  • Microalbuminuria was taken as the dependent variable. The following categories were taken as independent variables; sex was a discrete variable, other variables like age, body mass index, systolic blood pressure (BP), diastolic BP, fasting plasma glucose, glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), duration of diabetes, serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides and creatinine were continuous variables.
