    <p>BMI indicates body mass index. Clinical characteristics of age, BMI, SBP, DBP, eGFR, glucose, HDL-C, LDL-C, TG and TC values are given as mean (SD); categorical variables are presented as percentages.</p

    <p>The GDF-15 levels are presented as box (median, 25th percentile, 75th percentile) and whisker (5th and 95th percentiles) plots. P<0.001 by the Wilcoxon two-sample test in panels. GDF-15, growth differentiation factor; LVH, left ventricular hypertrophy.</p

    <p>Multivariate logistic regression analysis with the dependent variable as hypertension with or without LVH was performed, adjusted by traditional covariates age, sex, BMI, SBP, DBP, TC, LDL-C, HDL-C,TG, eGFR and glucose in hypertensive patients. The difference is significant at P<0.05.*; P<0.01. **.</p

    <p>Multivariate general linear was performed, adjusted by traditional covariates age, sex, BMI, SBP, DBP, TC, LDL-C, HDL-C, TG, eGFR and glucose in hypertensive patients with LVH. IVS, inter-ventricular septum; PWT, left ventricular posterior wall; EDD, end-diastolic diameter; ESD, end-systolic diameter; LVMI, left ventricular mass index. ╬▓ standardized coefficients were recorded for each outcome variable. The difference is significant at P<0.05.</p
