BMI  =  body mass index, BP  =  blood pressure, CHD  =  coronary heart disease, CI  =  confidence interval, HDL  =  high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, HR  =  hazard ratio (in Cox regression), I2  =  measure of heterogeneity between studies, SCD  =  sudden cardiac death, TC  =  total cholesterol.


Random-effects meta-analysis was used because of significant heterogeneity between studies.
