Abstract

This study examines the prevalence of atherosclerosis (using ankle-brachial index (ABI) value 100 mg per day, with the lowest OR for the range 141-190 mg (OR 0.4). Physical activity level, and self rated higher social standing in the community, while significant in univariate analysis, were not included as independent significant factors in the multivariate model. Lifestyle factors and the female gender were independent risk factors for atherosclerosis in the elderly Chinese population.
