Table 4 Stepwise regression analysis of factors independently associated with BMD included CA IMT.

From: Low bone mineral density is related to atherosclerosis in postmenopausal Moroccan women

  FT BMD W BMD FN BMD T BMD
  β β β β
Age -0.015* -0.019* -0.001* -0.014*
LDL 0.238* 0.151 0.241* 0.078
CA IMT -0.467* -0.054* -0.383* -0.489*
  1. LDL: low-density lipoprotein, CA: carotid artery, IMT: intima-media thickness, BMD: bone mineral density, FT: Femoral total, W: Ward triangle, FN: Femoral neck, T: Trochanter.
  2. Confounding factors are: Age, Menopause Age, systolic blood pressure, physical activity, LDL and CA IMT
  3. Values are standard regression coefficient (β). *p < 0.05
