  • Model 1 included only Helicobacter pylori infection. Age and carotid plaque status were added to Model 2. Model 3 was Model 2 with further adjustment for alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, and uric acid levels. Finally, more potential indicators and confounders, including fasting plasma glucose, total cholesterol, triglyceride, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and body mass index were added to Model 4
