Table 3 Multivariate Logistic regression analysis for increased mean IMT with different variables

From: Association between microalbuminuria and subclinical atherosclerosis evaluated by carotid artery intima-media in elderly patients with normal renal function

Variables Age- and Sex-adjusted ORa (95 % CI) Multivariable adjusted ORb (95 % CI)
Age (continuous) 1.08 (1.00-1.16) 1.09 (1.01-1.19)
Sex (female vs. male) 0.34 (0.18-0.63) 0.32 (0.14-0.71)
Current smoking (yes vs. no) 1.47 (0.77-2.82) 1.73 (0.86-3.49)
Hypertension (yes vs. no) 1.13 (0.52-2.45) 0.55 (0.22-1.38)
Diabetes (yes vs. no) 1.45 (0.80-2.64) 1.11 (0.57-2.12)
PP (continuous) 1.03 (1.00-1.05) 1.03 (1.01-1.06)
Microalbuminuria (yes vs. no) 3.38 (1.50-7.60) 2.95 (1.22-7.10)
Total cholesterol (continuous) 1.26 (0.92-1.73) 1.89 (1.26-2.85)
HDL cholesterol (continuous) 0.29 (0.11-0.79) 0.11 (0.03-0.38)
eGFR (continuous) 0.99 (0.96-1.02) 0.99 (0.96-1.03)
  1. Abbreviations: PP, pulse pressure; HDL, high-desity lipoprotein; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; IMT, intima-media thickness.
  2. aExcept for OR of age and sex, all ORs were age and sex adjusted.
  3. bModel was adjusted for other covariates in the table.
