Table 6 Multiple logistic regression analysis (dependent variable, presence of left ventricular systolic 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 1.10 1.01-1.21 0.032
SBP 1 mm Hg 0.91 0.84-0.99 0.022
Not significant correlates     
Age 1 year 1.11 0.92-1.34 0.264
Male gender   4.45 0.37-54 0.241
HbA1c 1% 0.77 0.24-2.47 0.659
CKD 0 = no; 1 = yes 2.64 0.08-83.4 0.581
Anti-hypertensive treatment 0 = no; 1 = yes 2.86 0.10-80.6 0.538
Anti-diabetic treatment 0 = no; 1 = yes 0.30 0.01-7.31 0.449
  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.
