Table 2 Baseline predictors of improved HbA1c or total cholesterol levels from 1996-2006, multivariate logistic regression models.

From: Changes in glycemic control from 1996 to 2006 among adults with type 2 diabetes: a longitudinal cohort study

  HbA1c (n = 1772) P-Value Total Cholesterol (n = 1172) P-Value
Age (decade) 1.41 (1.3-1.6) <0.001 1.6 (1.3-1.9) <0.001
Male gender 1.1 (1.6 to 3.6) 0.41 2.4 (1.6 - 3.6) <0.001
English Speaking 2.1 (1.4-3.1) 0.01 1.0 (0.5 to 2.2) 0.95
1996 level 2.9 (2.6 - 3.2) (for HbA1c) <0.001 1.04 (1.03-1.04) (for total cholesterol) <0.001
  1. 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.
