  • Odds ratio represents the odds of having the clinical characteristic in patients with night-eating symptoms compared with those without night-eating symptoms. Logistic multivariate models control for age, sex, race, and major depression status. A 95% CI >1.0 represents a significance level of P < 0.05.
