Factors Related to Depression Associated with Chewing Problems in the Korean Elderly Population
Int J Environ Res Public Health, Jun 7, 2021; DOI: 10.3390/ijerph18116158

The data were analyzed using SPSS (version 24.0; IBM Corp., Armonk, NY, USA) software for Windows. All statistical analyses applied the sampling weights to reflect estimates of the entire Korean population. The data are presented as estimated percentages (standard errors (SEs)) for categorical variables or estimated means (95% confidence intervals (95% CIs)) for continuous variables. Pearson’s chi-square test was used to identify the sociodemographic variables, depression, and EQ-5 dimensions (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, anxiety/depression) according to chewing problems. Continuous variables, such as age, PHQ-9, EQ-5D index, and dietary macronutrient consumption, were analyzed by performing independent t-tests. To identify the risk of depression depending on the chewing problem without adjusting for the covariates, logistic regression analysis was used. Multinomial logistic regression models after adjusting for the covariates were analyzed to estimate the risk of depression based on chewing problems. As covariates, sociodemographic variables (gender, age, educational level, individual income, and marriage status), health-related variables (regular drinker, current smoker, and aerobic physical activity), health-related quality of life, and dietary protein consumption were used. Statistical significance was defined as a p-value < 0.05.
