Table 3 Binary logistic regression analysis of the maximum likelihood estimates between plasma glucose, and seizure susceptibility in adult EL mice fed either the SD or KD1

From: Management of multifactorial idiopathic epilepsy in EL mice with caloric restriction and the ketogenic diet: role of glucose and ketone bodies

Dietary groups Parameter Df2 B3 SEM4 Wald x2 5 p value6
SD Glucose 1 0.774 0.139 30.962 0.01
  Constant 1 -0.584 1.013 29.292 0.01
KD Glucose 1 0.787 0.157 25.033 0.01
  Constant 1 -5.801 1.180 24.177 0.01
Both Diets Glucose 1 0.752 0.102 54.682 0.01
  Constant 1 -5.507 0.759 52.625 0.01
  1. 1 Data were obtained from all four dietary groups over the treatment weeks 3–12 for a total number of 210 individual measurements of plasma glucose and seizure susceptibility.
  2. 2 Df, degrees of freedom.
  3. 3 B, Estimate of the association between glucose and seizure susceptibility.
  4. 4 The estimated error of the mathematical weighting, indicating the precision of the estimated coefficient.
  5. 5 The Wald test statistic was computed from the data compared by using x2 distribution with 1 degree of freedom. The test statistic is used to determine the p value.
  6. 6 The probability of Type I error.
