From: Association between perceived insufficient sleep, frequent mental distress, obesity and chronic diseases among US adults, 2009 behavioral risk factor surveillance system

Chronic Disease (outcome variables) Frequent mental distress (FMD) Beta (SE)1 Obesity Beta (SE)1
Diabetes 0.55 (0.03)2 1.17 (0.02)2
High Blood Pressure 0.54 (0.02)2 0.99 (0.02)2
Coronary Heart Disease 0.90 (0.04)2 0.41 (0.03)2
Stroke 0.93 (0.04)2 0.18 (0.04)2
Asthma 0.62 (0.03)2 0.42 (0.02)2
Arthritis 0.87 (0.02)2 0.61 (0.02)2
  1. 1The regression coefficients were obtained from separate multivariate logistic regression models that assessed the relationship of either frequent mental distress (FMD) or obesity to the chronic disease and included age, sex, race/ethnicity, and education as covariates.
