Chi-square test was used to check the association between the identified risk factors
and warning signs of the stroke.
"The other risk factors
add some prognostic value, but not as much as you'd think."
Comparison of the relative weight of the occupational psychosocial risk factor
obtained in the decision-making matrix with the cutoff point set for this factor in the disease under study.
For men, many of the common risk factors
for heart disease - such as high blood pressure, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and smoking - are the same as the risk factors
for erectile dysfunction, which is a condition that affects as many as 25 per cent of all men under the age of 40.
Finally, the investigators used a standard statistical method to compare the stroke rate in women with versus without HIV; this method accounted for whatever other traditional stroke risk factors
a woman had (like older age, high blood pressure, or smoking).
Diabetes as risk factor
for incident coronary heart disease in women compared with men: a systematic review and meta-analysis of 64 cohorts including 858,507 individuals and 28,203 coronary events.
In multivariate analysis, age, malignant tumor, hypertension were independent risk factors
, while physical labour and postoperative exercises were protective factor for DVT.
 Insulin resistance stimulates increased glucose intake with compensated hyperinsulinemia leading to metabolic derangements which acts as a base for the development of coronary risk factors
. Hyperinsulinemia may raise BP through sympathetic stimulation and renal sodium retention.
Their detailed history was taken including symptoms at presentation and their risk factors
were assessed with the help of history and laboratory investigations.
Until now there hasn't been a self-assessment tool to help the public identify which common risk factors
they have and what they can do about them," Professor Anstey said according to (http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2014/01/28/Ten-minute-online-test-can-help-estimate-Alzheimers-risk/UPI-38191390887123/) United Press .
These definitional issues give rise to another complicating issue: There is no universal taxonomy of risk factors
. There is not even a general ideological constellation.
Overall, 67 per cent of the children had at least one risk factor
for heart disease.
