  1. P-value compares homogeneity of odds ratios across groups. CVD = Cardiovascular Disease, BMI = Body Mass Index (weight in kilograms/height in meters2), BP = Blood Pressure, LDL = low density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL = high density lipoprotein cholesterol. All 3 risk factors documented = documentation of BP + LDL + casual OR fasting glucose. Numbers and percentages in table reflect percentage of risk factor documented by BMI type in patients either with or without a history of CVD or DM (i.e., 1,931 = 73% of 2,647 patients who are obese with BP documented with a history of CVD).
