Procedure

The following two methods were used to estimate $kg$. The slope method—the following Eq. (6) derived from Eq. (2) shows that the slope of the line connecting a point and the origin is $kgAG$.

Estimating the slope of the regression line through the origin by the least square model:

where $xi$, $yi$ are $MRBC$ and $iA1c1000-23iA1c$ of each participant, respectively.

The direct method—the $kg$ of each participant was calculated by the following equation:

Then, average and standard deviation of each $kg$ was calculated.
