Table 2 Multiple regression analysis to identify predictive factors for the development/progression of NAFLD

From: Involvement of a periodontal pathogen, Porphyromonas gingivalis on the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Risk Factors standard error Odds ratio P value 95% CI
P. gingivalis 0.490 2.615 0.049 1.001-6.832
Age 0.014 0.994 0.668 0.968-1.021
DM 0.821 9.433 0.006 1.883-47.62
BMI 0.085 1.631 < 0.0001 1.381-1.927
  1. The dependent variable is presence of NAFLD, and the independent variables are presence/absence of P. gingivalis infection, age, presence/absence of diabetes (DM), and body mass index (BMI). P value < 0.05 were considered significant. R2 for entire model = 0.429.
