  1. *Logistic regression models adjusted for age, gender, race/ethnicity, insurance status, type of practice (solo or group), and number of past visits during the previous 12 months. Regressions were limited to patients with BMI recorded at visit and excluded those with BMI < 18.5 kg/m2.
  2. †Obesity odds ratios and AFs based on diagnosis codes only.
