From: Increased LDL susceptibility to oxidation accelerates future carotid artery atherosclerosis

Characteristica Multivariate OR (95% CI)b,c P
Age 1.034 (1.010 - 1.059) 0.005
HbA1c (%) 1.477 (0.980 - 2.225) 0.062

  1. aData in 1996-1997; bOR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; cVariables evaluated for elimination were age, sex, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglyceride, fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, fasting insulin, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, BMI, and photometric O/N, and electrophoretic O/N.
