From: Shift work and the risk of cardiovascular disease among workers in cocoa processing company, Tema

Risk factors Adjusted odds ratio 95 % CI p value
TC 1.90 0.93–2.24 0.6545
TG 2.45 0.8–4.70 0.4316
HDL 0.40 0.13–0.73 0.016**
FBG 1.26 0.59–2.34 0.6736
hs-CRP 3.20 1.31–4.76 0.0318*
HbA1c 2.70 0.9–8.42 0.1899
WHR 0.54 0.50–0.90 0.0008**
BMI 1.32 0.67–1.07 0.1096
  1. The table shows the association between several parameters (TC, TG, HDL, FBG, hs-CRP, HbA1c, BMI and WHR) with shift work
  2. HbA1c glycated haemoglobin, hs-CRP highly sensitive C-reactive protein, TC total cholesterol, TG triglyceride, HDL high density lipoprotein, WHR waist hip ratio, FBG fasting blood glucose, BMI body mass index, OR adjusted odds ratio
  3. * Mean difference is significant (p < 0.05)
  4. ** Mean difference is highly significant (p < 0.0001)
