  1. *The results are given as Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r). † Adjusted associations between the comorbidity (dependent variable) and CRP, E2 and E4, age, gender and BMI were analysed with logistic and linear regression analyses. The results are reported as Odds Ratio (OR) and unstandardized coefficients (B-value) with 95% confidence intervals and p-values
