All the respective biomarker-models are adjusted for age, sex, LVEF, NYHA, eGFR, andT2D.

Abbreviations: eGFR: estimated glomerular filtration rate; LVEF: left ventricular ejection fraction; MR-proADM: mid-regional pro-adrenomedullin; MR-proANP: mid-regional pro-A-type natriuretic peptide; NT-proBNP: N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide; NYHA: New York Heart Association functional classification; T2D: type 2 diabetes.
