  1. aModel 1: odds ratio for development of tibiofemoral bone marrow lesions for each increase of 1 standard deviation in the respective fatty acid intake after adjusting for energy intake. bModel 2: odds ratio for development of tibiofemoral bone marrow lesions for each increase of 1 standard deviation in the respective fatty acid intake after adjusting for energy intake, age, gender, and body mass index. CI, confidence interval; OR, odds ratio.
