Table 2 Odds-ratio (OR) of the risk factors for hip fracture in elderly women and men by conditional logistic regression analysis

From: Abdominal fat and hip fracture risk in the elderly: The Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study

  Unadjusted OR (95% CI) OR (95% CI) adjusted for FNBMD OR (95% CI) adjusted for weight
Women    
   Abdominal fata (-10%) 1.5 (1.1 to 2.1) 1.1 (0.7 to 1.5) 1.1 (0.7 to 1.7)
   Weight (-10 kg) 2.0 (1.4 to 2.8) 1.3(0.9 to 1.7) -
   BMI (-4 kg/m2) 1.7 (1.2 to 2.4) 1.2 (0.8 to 1.7) 1.5 (0.7 to 3.0)
   FNBMD (-0.12 g/cm2) 2.4 (1.7 to 3.9) - 2.1 (1.3 to 3.5)
Men    
   Abdominal fata (-10%) 1.2 (0.7 to 2.0) 1.5 (0.7 to 2.9) 1.8 (0.8 to 4.0)
   Weight (-10 kg) 1.4 (0.8 to 2.3) 1.5 (0.7 to 3.2) -

   FNBMD (-0.12 g/cm2) 2.3 (1.3 to 4.0) - 3.0 (1.3 to 6.5)
  1. BMI, Body mass index; FNBMD, femoral neck bone mineral density.
  2. aAbdominal fat was expressed as percentage of the total soft tissue.
  3. Bold-faced values are statistically significant.
