  • Coefficients and p-values of interactions terms between pairs of triggers are shown. Exercise: running/playing and/or laughing/crying/excitement; allergens: food/drink and/or pollen/grass; infection: colds. The model included main effects for exercise, allergens and infection, and the presented interaction terms between classes of triggers. OR 1 means that the presence of one trigger does not affect the presence of the other (independence of the classes). GOF: goodness of fit. #: p-values close to 1 indicate good fit while p<0.05 indicates poor fit; GOF tests are based on the deviance statistic and compare the presented models with the saturated models that include three-way interaction.
