a Variable (s) entered on step 1: CAT (catalase); b Variable (s) entered on step 2: LDL-C (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol); Wald: Wald statistic coefficient. B : the meaning of the coefficient B indicates the direction of the relationship. Thus, the relationship is positive for the LDL variable, which means that high LDL values predict the presence of crisis. On the other hand, the relationship is negative with CAT, which means that the higher the CAT values, the less likely the patient will develop a crisis.
