From: Diabetes and hypertension markedly increased the risk of ischemic stroke associated with high serum resistin concentration in a general Japanese population: the Hisayama Study

Figure 2

Multivariate-adjusted odds ratios for ischemic stroke according to the presence or absence of high serum resistin concentrations and either diabetes or hypertension. Multivariate adjustment was made as described in the legend of Fig. 1, but each risk factor that had been used for categorization was excluded from the confounding factors. High resistin was defined as the third, fourth, and fifth quintile of resistin concentration. A. Diabetes (DM). The OR compared to the reference (DM (-) + low resistin) is shown. *, OR = 5.54 (95% CI, 2.60-11.76), p < 0.001 for DM (+) + high resistin. OR = 1.87 (95% CI, 0.97-3.59), p = 0.06, for DM (-) + high resistin; OR = 1.25 (95% CI, 0.34-4.64), p = 0.73 for DM (+) + low resistin. †, p < 0.05 compared to DM (+) + low resistin. B. Hypertension (HT). OR compared to the reference (HT (-) + low resistin) is shown. *, OR=4.46 (95% CI, 1.71-11.62), p = 0.002 for HT (+) + high resistin. OR= 1.47 (95% CI, 0.53-4.08), p = 0.45, for HT (-) + high resistin; OR = 1.48 (95% CI, 0.49-4.53), p = 0.49 for HT (+) + low resistin. †, p < 0.05 compared to HT (+) + low resistin.
