Table 4 Multivariable logistic regression analysis presenting associations between log klotho and each component of metabolic syndrome

From: Serum klotho is inversely associated with metabolic syndrome in chronic kidney disease: results from the KNOW-CKD study

Variable Adjusted OR (95% CI)
High blood pressure High fasting glucose Abdominal obesity Hypertriglyceridemia Low HDL-cholesterol
Log klotho 0.05 (0.01–0.29) 1.32 (0.70–2.51) 0.68 (0.36–1.28) 0.48 (0.27–0.87) 0.71 (0.38–1.31)
P-value 0.001 0.389 0.235 0.016 0.271
  1. Adjusted for covariates log klotho, age, sex, eGFR, and overt proteinuria
  2. OR Odds ratio, CI confidence interval, HDL high-density lipoprotein, eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate by CKD-EPI creatinine equation
