Restricted model: Time-dependent BMI (continuous and quadratic term) or WC (continuous) plus age, sex, smoking (no, yes), Chagas disease (no, yes), log-transformed creatinine (continuous), log-transformed BNP levels (continuous), major ECG abnormalities (no, yes), physical activity within the last 90 days (no, yes), household income (<4, 4–10, ≥10 minimum wage), and education (never, 1–4, ≥4 years).

Extensive model: Restricted model plus diabetes (no, yes), total cholesterol (continuous), systolic blood pressure (continuous), anti-hypertensive treatment (no, yes).

BMI and WC together: BMI (continuous and quadratic term), WC (continuous) plus extensive model.
