Table 5 Multiple logistic regression analysis (dependent variable, presence of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction)

From: The activity of circulating dipeptidyl peptidase-4 is associated with subclinical left ventricular dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Significant correlates Units of increase Odds ratio 95% CI p value
DPP4 100 pmol/min/mL 1.05 1.01-1.09 0.027
Not significant correlates     
Age 1 year 1.09 0.99-1.19 0.069
Male gender   0.40 0.10-1.55 0.183
HbA1c 1% 1.09 0.62-1.91 0.776
SBP 1 mm Hg 1.01 0.97-1.04 0.741
CKD 0 = no; 1 = yes 2.30 0.34-15.8 0.396
Anti-hypertensive treatment 0 = no; 1 = yes 0.68 0.14-3.38 0.637
Anti-diabetic treatment 0 = no; 1 = yes 2.01 0.40-10.6 0.413
  1. DPP4 means dipeptidyl peptidase-4; HbA1c, glycosylated haemoglobin; SBP, systolic blood pressure; CKD, chronic kidney disease. Data are expressed as odds ratio and 95% confidence interval.
