Table 3 Multiple logistic regression models: high 10-year CHD risk (≥20% by UKPDS score) as dependent variable

From: Adiposity markers and risk of coronary heart disease in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Abnormal levels Abnormal levels - adjusted model
Body mass index 1.59 (0.98-2.58) 1.43 (0.85-2.42)
Waist circumference 1.23 (0.66-2.30) 1.07 (0.54-2.12)
Waist-to-hip ratio 0.32 (0.07-1.42) 0.38 (0.08-1.79)
Waist-to-height ratio 0.96 (0.26-3.57) 0.96 (0.23-4.01)
Conicity index 1.72 (1.09-2.73)* 1.69 (1.03-2.78)*
Body adiposity index 1,12 (0.71-1.76) 1.06 (0.65-1.73)
  1. Analyses performed on 420 type 2 diabetic patients. Markers defined as abnormal when: Body Mass Index ≥30 kg/m2; waist circumference >80 cm for females or >94 cm for males; waist-to-hip ratio >0.85 for females or >0.90 for males; waist-to-height ratio >0.5; conicity index >1.35; body adiposity index >35 for females or >25 for males. Adjusted model: sedentary lifestyle, nephropathy, serum creatinine, and diabetes duration (years) as confounders. Normal levels were used as reference for regression models. *P <0.05.
