Table 5 Uni and multivariate analysis of the anthropometric parameters of general evaluation (BMI) and muscular (AMA) and lipidic (AFA) compartments.

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

UNIVARIATE ANALYSIS
HYPOTHESIS BMI AMA AFA MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS
FOUR EQUAL GROUPS 0,112 0,343 0,170 0,001
THREE EQUAL CIRRHOTIC GROUPS     0,001
ALC = ALC + HCV     0,812
ALC = HCV     0,001
ALC + HCV = HCV     0,001
ALC = CONTROL     0,001
ALC + HCV = CONTROL     0,003
HCV = CONTROL     0,089
  1. Note: The HCV group, with no alcohol, was significantly different from other aetiologies being closer to the control group.
