Table 6 Predictors of ukMI in a multiple logistic stepwise regression analysis

From: Silent myocardial infarction in women with impaired glucose tolerance: The Northern Sweden MONICA study

Risk factor OR 95 % CI
Male sex ? 0.88 0.39; 1.96
Age (years) 1.07 1.02; 1.13
Smoking 0.54 0.16; 1.88
Hypercholesterolemia 1.38 0.58; 3.30
Hypertension 2.00 0.85; 4.70
IGT 2.40 0.87; 6.68
  1. ukMI = unknown myocardial infarction. OR (= odds ratio) calculated with all variables entered simultaneously, with age as a continous variable. CI = confidence interval. IGT = impaired glucose tolerance. Risk factor definitions were as described in Methods.
