Table 6 Adjusted odds ratios (ORs) for statin treatment prior to first-time myocardial infarction (n = 928)

From: Low use of statins for secondary prevention in primary care: a survey in a northern Swedish population

Characteristic Adjusted OR (95 % CI) p
Age ≥70 years 1.29 (0.79–2.11) 0.305
Female gender 1.88 (1.02–3.50) 0.044
Age ≥70 years × female gender 0.24 (0.11–0.54) <0.001
Diabetes 8.55 (5.72–12.79) 0.001
Prior cardiovascular disease (CVD) 3.27 (2.08–5.13) <0.001
  1. CVD is a composite of diagnoses: including angina pectoris, prior revascularisation, ischaemic stroke/transitory ischaemic attack, or peripheral artery disease (PAD).
