Table 3 Results of multiple linear regression of the association between physical activity with disease activity as continuous variables, for CD and UC

From: Patient experiences with the role of physical activity in inflammatory bowel disease: results from a survey and interviews

  CD (n = 176) UC (n = 162)
β-coefficient (95% CI)a p value β-coefficient (95% CI)a p value
Total physical activity score
 Crude − 0.406 (− 0.698 to 0.114) 0.007 − 0.006 (− 0.015 to 0.003) 0.162
 1 − 0.395 (− 0.693 to 0.097) 0.010 − 0.005 (− 0.014 to 0.004) 0.293
 2 − 0.375 (− 0.668 to 0.081) 0.013 − 0.003 (− 0.013 to 0.006) 0.490
  1. CD disease activity scores can range from 0 to > 450 and UC disease activity scores can range from 0 to 19
  2. Bold values are significant
  3. CD Crohn’s disease, UC ulcerative colitis, CI confidence interval
  4. aPer 100 point increase in total physical activity score
  5. Model 1: adjusted for age (years), gender (m/f), BMI (kg/m2) and education level (low/middle/high)
  6. Model 2: as model 1 plus age at diagnosis (years), medication use (yes/no) and previous IBD-related surgery (yes/no)
