Adjusted OR for high fasting blood glucose to quartiles of soft drink intake by MC4R genotypes (P interaction = 0.02); Q1 < 1.09, Q2 = 1.09–8.33, Q3 = 8.33–28.57, Q4 > 28.57 gr. In GG genotype carriers, the odds ratio for high FPG increased significantly across quartiles of soft drink intakes (p trend = 0.006), but this association was not significant in risk genotype carriers (AG + AA) (p trend = 0.48)
