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

Variables Coefficient 95 % CI p value
WHR (ratio) 0.31 6.17 21.56 0.001**
TC (mmol/L) 0.24 −0.17 1.27 0.136
TG (mmol/L) 0.09 −0.53 1.25 0.426
LDL (mmol/L) −0.11 −1.51 0.72 0.365
hs-CRP (U/L) −0.48 −2.71 0.26 0.018*
Coronary risk 0.74 1.07 3.73 0.001**
  1. The analysis used BMI as an independent variable and several parameters (TC, TG, hs-CRP, coronary risk and WHR) as the dependent variables
  2. hs-CRP highly sensitive C-reactive protein, TC total cholesterol, TG triglyceride, WHR waist hip ratio, LDL low density lipoprotein
  3. * Mean difference is significant (p < 0.05)
  4. ** Mean difference is highly significant (p < 0.0001)
