OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval.

aCrude Odds ratios (ORs) and their 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were computed with univariable logistic regressions and adjusted OR (95% CI) were computed with multivariable binomial logistic regressions, adjusting for age, sex, education, marital status, private insurance, alcohol, current smoking, frequency of strength exercise, obesity and subjective health status.
