Table 3 Cardiovascular risk scores assessed in 1997-1999 for males (n = 2 411) and females (n = 2 448) using cardiovascular medication (CVM) in 2008 versus those not on CVM (males: n = 6 872, females: n = 8 521)1.

From: Does present use of cardiovascular medication reflect elevated cardiovascular risk scores estimated ten years ago? A population based longitudinal observational study
