Table 2 Univariate logistic regression analyses of risk factors associated with the presence of LVDD

From: Accumulation of epicardial fat rather than visceral fat is an independent risk factor for left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis

  1. Abbreviations: LVDD, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction; OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; BMI, body mass index; DM, diabetes mellitus; Ln(LDL), natural logarithm of low-density lipoprotein; TG, triglyceride; hsCRP, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; LV, left ventricular; EpF, epicardial fat. ORs and 95% CIs were estimated by logistic regression.
