Table 3 Effect of diabetic status in the association of adiposity with LV parameters

From: Association between abdominal adiposity and subclinical measures of left-ventricular remodeling in diabetics, prediabetics and normal controls without history of cardiovascular disease as measured by magnetic resonance imaging: results from the KORA-FF4 Study

  Controls Pre-diabetics Diabetics p value inter-action
β (95% CI) β (95% CI) β (95% CI)
VAT—LVCI 0.11 (0.08; 0.15) 0.10 (0.03; 0.16) 0.16 (0.04; 0.28) 0.74
VAT—LVEDV − 6.59 (− 8.81; − 4.36) − 3.91 (− 7.05; − 0.77) − 4.18 (− 9.7; 1.34) 0.77
VAT—LVSV − 4.03 (− 5.62; − 2.44) − 2.46 (− 4.4; − 0.53) − 3.90 (− 6.86; − 0.94) 0.81
  1. The β-coefficients represent change in LV parameters for one standard deviation increment in VAT estimated by linear regression (adjusted for sex, age); the models were not fit for the association between VAT and LVM since they were non-significant after adjustment for age and gender (Table 2)
  2. VAT visceral adipose tissue, LV left-ventricular, LVCI left-ventricular concentricity index (mL/g), LVEDV left-ventricular end-diastolic volume (mL/m2), LVSV left ventricular stroke volume (mL/m2)
