  • Obesity was defined as BMI ≥25 kg/m2.

  • Multivariate model included age, sex, eGFR, total cholesterol level, follow-up period, smoking, and drinking.

  • BMI, body mass index; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; IFG, impaired fasting glucose; IGT, impaired glucose tolerance; NFG, normal fasting glucose; NGT, normal glucose tolerance.
