cardiac_risk_ratio
Cardiac Risk Ratio (TC/HDL) - AHA
Cardiac Risk Ratio (TC/HDL) - AHA

This variable calculates the ratio of total cholesterol by HDL cholesterol.

Laboratory Measures
ckd
Chronic Kidney Disease using eGFR only (NIDDK)
Chronic Kidney Disease using eGFR only (NIDDK)

This variable estimated based on the estimated GFR value and is defined using NIDDK guidelines.

Laboratory Measures
dyslipidemia
Dyslipidemia (High LDL, low HDL, or high triglyerides) - NIH
Dyslipidemia (High LDL, low HDL, or high triglyerides) - NIH

This variable checks for HDL, LDL, and triglyceride values to determine presence/absence of dyslipidemia.

Laboratory Measures
gfrscr
eGFR based on serum creatinine, gender, age and race
eGFR based on serum creatinine, gender, age and race

This variable estimates Glomerular filtration rate, based on serum creatinine, and demographics gender, age and race (black vs. nonblack).

Laboratory Measures
gfrscys
eGFR based on serum cystatin C w/o demographics
eGFR based on serum cystatin C w/o demographics

This variable estimates Glomerular filtration rate, based on serum cystatin C and no demographic factors.

Laboratory Measures
gfrscys_scr
eGFR based on serum cystatin C, serum creatinine, gender, age, and race
eGFR based on serum cystatin C, serum creatinine, gender, age, and race

This variable estimates Glomerular filtration rate, based on serum cystatin C, serum creatinine, and demographics gender, age and race (black vs. nonblack).

Laboratory Measures
high_total_chol
Hypercholesterolemia (from LABA66,LABA68,LABA69,MED_LLD)
Hypercholesterolemia (from LABA66,LABA68,LABA69,MED_LLD)

This variable checks for Total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and antihyperlipidemic medication use values to determine presence/absence of hypercholesterolemia.

Laboratory Measures
insulin_fast
Insulin, fasting (calibrated, converted to mU/L)
Insulin, fasting (calibrated, converted to mU/L)

This variable combines fasting glucose results from the central lab that was processed prior to July 5, 2010 (using units of mU/L) with results processed on or after July 5, 2010 (using units of pmol/L) and the overall units are converted to mU/L (1 mU/L = 6 pmol/L).

Laboratory Measures
insulin_ogtt
Insulin, post OGTT (calibrated, converted to mU/L)
Insulin, post OGTT (calibrated, converted to mU/L)

This variable combines post OGTT glucose results from the central lab that were processed prior to July 5, 2010 (using units of mU/L) with results processed on or after July 5, 2010 (using units of pmol/L) and the overall units are converted to mU/L (1 mU/L = 6 pmol/L).
