Table 3 Values of hemoglobin levels according to predefined groups

From: Differences in routine laboratory parameters related to cachexia between patients with hematological diseases and patients with solid tumors or heart failure – is there only one cachexia?

  All Cachectic Non-cachectic p-value (C vs. NC)
All 12.53 (+/−2.1) 11.73 (+/−2.0) 12.90 (+/−2.0) p = 0.039*
Hematological 12.70 (+/−2.3) 11.20 (+/−2.2) 13.27 (+/−2.0) p = 0.003*
Non-hematological 12.38 (+/−1.9) 12.09 (+/−1.8) 12.53 (+/−2.0) p = 0.27
p-value (H vs. NH) p = 0.33 p = 0.16 p = 0.07  
  1. Abbreviations H = hematological, NH = non-hematological, C = cachectic, NC = non-cachectic. Values of hemoglobin levels are in g/dl. *statistically significant.
