Variables included in the model were age (OR 1.2, 95% CI 1.1–1.2 per 10 years of age); sex; alcohol use (OR 1.3, 1.1–1.4 for each 10 centiliters of alcohol per week); tobacco use (OR 1.4, 1.2–1.6 for each 10 cigarettes per day); hypertension; angina pectoris; heart failure; history of myocardial infarction; hyperlipidemia; psychiatric, renal, prostatic, and gastrointestinal disorders (inflammatory bowel diseases OR 3.7, 1.2–12.0); and use of statines, fibrates, β-blockers, calcium channel blockers, diurectics, ACE inhibitors, nitrates, low-dose aspirin, and proton pump inhibitors.
