Table 2 Odds ratio for newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus in hypertension (n = 137) versus newly diagnosed hypertension in diabetes (n = 155)

From: Comparison between newly diagnosed hypertension in diabetes and newly diagnosed diabetes in hypertension

Variable Odds ratio (95% confidence interval) P value
Age (+ 10 years) 1.24 (0.99–1.56) 0.06
Male sex 1.75 (1.08–2.84) 0.02
Body mass index (+ 3 kg/m2) 1.27 (1.03–1.56) 0.03
Heart rate (+ 10 beats/min) 0.80 (0.66–0.96) 0.02
  1. In a stepwise multiple logistic regression model, we forced age and sex and considered body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio, current smoking and alcohol intake, heart rate, serum triglycerides, and serum total and high-density cholesterol for entry and stay at a significance level of P ≤ 0.10
