  1. Note: Data shown are odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) adjusted for age and sex compared to the reference category (white non-Hispanic patients) with the lowest odds of the index outcome (diabetes mellitus). These data correspond with the results projected onto the circular visual in Fig. 2. *Statistically significant (95% confidence interval excludes 1.00 or p < 0.05)
