Adjusted* HR (95% CI) of incident diagnosed diabetes by baseline NT-proBNP level overlaid on the distribution (frequency histogram) of NT-proBNP in the study population. HRs are presented using a logarithmic scale. Linear spline centered at 14.7 (10th percentile), with knots at the 33rd and 66th percentiles (24.9 and 76.2, respectively), after excluding values ≥99 percentile (NT-proBNP ≥611 pg/mL). *Adjusted for weight, height, age, race/center, sex, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, smoking, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, C-reactive protein, fasting glucose, and family history of diabetes.
