Table 2 Logistic regression analysis on values of TSH and BMI dichotomized by median values (0 = bottom values; 1 = top values) in the population as a whole

From: The impact of the metabolic phenotype on thyroid function in obesity

Variables TSH BMI
Age 0.98 (0.96–0.99) 0.99 (0.98–1.01)
Female gender 1.08 (0.59–1.73) 5.67 (3.618.90)
TSH 1.05 (0.89–1.24)
BMI 0.97 (0.94–1.01)
REE 1.00 (0.99–1.00) 1.003 (1.002–1.003)
HOMA-IR 1.01 (0.99–1.02) 0.99 (0.98–1.01)
Use of metformin 1.09 (0.78–1.52) 1.29 (0.90–1.85)
  1. Odds ratio and 95 % confidence intervals are displayed. BMI body mass index; REE resting energy expenditure; HOMA-IR homeostatic model of insulin resistance. Use of metformin was categorized as 0 = no use of metformin, 1 = use of metformin. Significant values are in italics
