Cardiovascular risks in higher taurine-magnesium (T-M) excreters and lower T-M excreters. T/Cr = 24-hour urinary (24U) taurine (T, mmol) to creatinine (Cr, g) ratio, M/Cr = 24U-magnesium (M, mg) to Cr ratio. T/Cr: + mean (= 639.4), - < mean, M/Cr: + mean (= 82.8), - < mean. BMI: body mass index (body weight (kg)/height (m)2), SBP: systolic blood pressure, DBP: diastolic blood pressure, T-Cho: total cholesterol, AI: atherogenic index (T-Cho/high density lipoprotein cholesterol). Parenthesis indicates a number of participants. Significant difference: ***p < 0.001.
