Table 2 Factors associated with frailty in multivariate logistic regression analysis

From: Risk factors of frailty and functional disability in community-dwelling older adults: a cross-sectional analysis of the FREEDOM-LNA cohort study

Frailty (N = 582) * Adjusted OR [95% CI] P value
Age (continuous variable) 1.08 [1.04; 1.12]  < 0.001
Depressive symptoms, GDS > 9 (Yes vs. No) 4.20 [2.81; 6.29]  < 0.001
Cognitive deficit, MMSE < 24 (Yes vs. No) 1.94 [1.30; 2.91] 0.001
Diabetes (Yes vs. No) 1.81 [1.13; 2.89] 0.013
Living alone (Yes vs. No) 0.63 [0.42; 0.93] 0.021
  1. N = 582 (171 subjects had at least one covariate missing); OR: odd ratio (frail versus non-frail)
