Table 3 Variables independently associated with a non-diagnostic %CDT identified by logistic regression

From: Diagnostic sensitivity of carbohydrate deficient transferrin in heavy drinkers

   95% Confidence intervals  
Variable Odds ratio Lower Upper P-value
Gender (Women) 14.3 1.5 132.0 0.019
BMI (Overweight/Obese) 5.8 1.0 32.9 0.047
Cirrhosis (Yes) 17.2 2.2 137.0 0.007
Alcohol consumption over prior 2 weeks (g/week) 0.998 0.996 1.000 0.029
  1. For categorical variables, the odds ratio refers to the category shown in brackets; for alcohol consumption the odds ratio refers to the decreased likelihood of a non-diagnostic %CDT per increase in alcohol consumption by 1 g/week.
