Table 5 Multivariate logistic regression analysis to determine factors correlated to arterial stiffness

From: Low serum adiponectin level is associated with metabolic syndrome and is an independent marker of peripheral arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients

Variables Hypertensive patients (n = 101) Hypertension without MS (n = 38) Hypertension with MS (n = 63)
  OR 95% CI P value OR 95% CI P value OR 95% CI P value
Adiponectin (μg/mL) 0.932 0.881–0.985 0.012* 0.909 0.931–0.996 0.040*
SBP (mmHg) 1.059 1.008–1.113 0.022* 1.126 1.024–1.237 0.014*
GFR (mL/min) 0.858 0.739–0.996 0.043*
