Table 2 Multivariable logistic regression analysis of the factors correlated with arterial stiffness among the 105 hypertensive patients

From: Serum levels of sclerostin as a potential biomarker in central arterial stiffness among hypertensive patients

Variables Odds ratio 95% confidence interval p value
Sclerostin (pmol/L) 1.042 1.017–1.068 0.001*
Age 1.088 1.021–1.159 0.010*
Intact parathyroid hormone 1.025 1.003–1.048 0.026*
Systolic blood pressure 1.028 0.996–1.062 0.086
Diabetes mellitus 2.189 0.769–6.235 0.142
Estimated glomerular filtration rate 0.996 0.969–1.024 0.794
  1. Patients with carotid–femoral pulse wave velocity values > 10 m/s were assigned to the arterial stiffness in this study
  2. *Values of p <  0.05 were considered statistically significant in the forward multivariate logistic regression analysis (adopted factors: diabetes mellitus, age, systolic blood pressure, estimated glomerular filtration rate, intact parathyroid hormone, and sclerostin)
