Table 4 Results of the uni and multivariate analysis of the anthropometric parameters on the nutritional evaluation of cirrhotic groups.

From: Different degrees of malnutrition and immunological alterations according to the aetiology of cirrhosis: a prospective and sequential study

Univariate Analysis
Hypothesis IBW BMI AMC AMC deplet. TSF TSF deplet. AMA AFA CHI Multivariate Analysis
Four equal groups 0.103 0.112 0.195 0.217 0.004 0.406 0.343 0.170 0.001 0.001
Three equal cirrhotic groups      0.019     0.059 0.001
ALC = ALC + VHC      0.027     0.557 0.771
ALC = HCV      0.648     0.061 0.001
ALC + HCV = HCV      0.006     0.026 0.002
  1. Where: % IBW = percentage of ideal body weight; BMI = body mass index; AMC = arm muscle circunference; % AMC deplet. = percentage of AMC depletion; TSF = triceps skinfold; % TSF deplet. = percentage of TSF depletion; AMA = arm muscle area; AFA = arm fat area; CHI = creatinine height index.
