Table 3 Multiple regression analysis of association of dietary intake to presence of asymptomatic diverticular disease

From: Dietary habits and the presence and degree of asymptomatic diverticular disease by magnetic resonance imaging in a Western population: a population-based cohort study

  Model 1
(adjusted for age, sex, and total energy intake)
Model 2
(Model 1 + adjusted for BMI, alcohol consumption, smoking behavior and physical activity)
Outcome no versus any diverticular disease Outcome no versus advanced diverticular disease Outcome no versus any diverticular disease Outcome no versus advanced diverticular disease

  1. Bold values denote statistical significance at the p < 0.05 level
  2. Presented are odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) from a logistic regression model with outcome diverticular disease. Models are adjusted for age, sex, total energy intake, BMI, alcohol consumption and smoking behavior. All predictor variables were standardized (mean = 0, SD = 1) before analysis
