  1. 1OR (odds ratios) are based on logistic regression models with log10 transformations of TF and Tn values and including menopausal (pre- vs. post) status in the overall model and age in the pre- and post-menopausal group models. 95% confidence intervals are in parentheses.
  2. *Significant at the p ≤ .05 level; **p ≤ .01.
