From: Helicobacter pylori infection as a risk factor for serum bilirubin change and less favourable lipid profiles: a hospital-based health examination survey

  Direct bilirubin Total bilirubin
Odds ratio 95% CI P value Odds ratio 95% CI P value
Model 1 1.483 1.143–1.925 0.003 1.336 1.030–1.733 0.029
Model 2 1.500 1.151–1.955 0.003 1.352 1.036–1.764 0.026
Model 3 1.503 1.146–1.972 0.003 1.328 1.014–1.739 0.039

  1. Participants were assigned to two groups according to upper quartile of direct bilirubin (2.8) and total bilirubin (16.4) respectively. Participants with H. pylori overt negative were defined as 0 and those with H. pylori overt positive were defined as 1. Model 1 is unadjusted. Model 2 is adjusted for age, sex. Model 3 is further adjusted for BMI, ALT and AST. Model 4 is further adjusted for TG, TC, LDL-C, HDL-C
