  1. ABI indicates ankle-brachial index, IMT intima media thickness, SE standard error, TIBC total iron-binding capacity, and TS transferrin saturation
  2. *Correlations in these rows come from an 8-trait analysis including hepcidin, ferritin, iron, TIBC, presence of plaque, IMT, ABI at rest and ABI after exercise
  3. †Correlations in this row come from a 7-trait analysis including the ratio hepcidin/ferritin, iron, TIBC, presence of plaque, IMT, ABI at rest and ABI after exercise
  4. ‡Correlations in this row come from a 6-trait analysis including the ratio hepcidin/TS, ferritin, presence of plaque, IMT, ABI at rest and ABI after exercise
  5. §Correlations in this row come from a 7-trait analysis including hepcidin, ferritin, TS, presence of plaque, IMT, ABI at rest and ABI after exercise
