Cardiovascular disease risks in higher and lower taurine-magnesium excreters with greater or lesser sodium excretion. T/Cr = 24-hour urinary (24U) taurine (T, mmol) to creatinine (Cr, g) ratio, M/Cr = 24U-magnesium (M, mg) to Cr ratio, Na: 24U-sodium (Na as NaCl, g/day). T/Cr: + ≧ mean (= 639.4), - < mean, M/Cr: + ≧ mean (= 82.8), - < mean, Na: + ≧ mean (= 10.14), - < 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.
