Adjusted for age, sex, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, and current smoker.
Characteristics of disease (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, nodular cyst, hormone treatment) include both medical history review and currently diagnosed disease.
Diabetes is diagnosed as fasting plasma glucose (126 mg/dL).
Hypertension is diagnosed as a systolic blood , a diastolic blood , or current use of antihypertensive drugs.
Hyperlipidaemia is diagnosed as abnormally elevated serum level of any or all lipids and/or lipoproteins.
Multivariate logistic regression analysis.
