Cardiovascular disease risks in higher taurine-magnesium-potassium (T-M-K) excreters and lower T-M-K excreters. T/Cr: 24-hour urinary (24U) taurine (T, mmol) to creatinine (Cr, g) ratio, M/Cr: 24U-magnesium (M, mg) to Cr ratio, K/Cr: 24U-potassium (K, milliequivalent) to Cr ratio. T/Cr: + mean (= 639.4), - < mean, M/Cr: + mean (= 82.8), - < mean, K/Cr: + mean (= 46.1), - < 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 (Total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol). Parenthesis indicates a number of participants. Significant difference: *p < 0.05, ***p < 0.001.
