Note. VE = vital exhaustion, FMD = flow-mediated dilatation (%), CAC = carotid artery compliance (%/10 mmHg).

1 The main effects were included in each analysis, but they are not presented in the table.

*Calculated for the whole model.

**Refers to the interaction term.

#Additionally adjusted for cardiovascular risk factors: LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
