 This table presents the adjusted odds ratios (aOR) and 95% confidence intervals for two separate models; the HbA1c model identifies predictors of HbA1c improving from 1996 to 2006 after adjusting for all of the other variables; the Total cholesterol model identifies independent predictors of total cholesterol improving from 1996 to 2006 among patients with tests in both years (n = 1172), adjusted for the other variables.
