Table 2 Odds ratios for high cardiometabolic index (CMI) of each drinker group vs. the nondrinker group

From: A U-shaped relationship between alcohol consumption and cardiometabolic index in middle-aged men

  Nondrinkers Light drinkers Moderate drinkers Heavy drinkers Very heavy drinkers
High CMI      
Crude OR 1.00 0.67 (0.60–0.74)** 0.75 (0.70–0.80)** 0.91 (0.84–0.99)* 1.07 (0.90–1.26)
Adjusted OR 1.00 0.67 (0.60–0.74)** 0.73 (0.68–0.78)** 0.85 (0.78–0.93)** 0.95 (0.81–1.13)
  1. Crude and adjusted odds ratios (ORs) with their 95 % confidence intervals in the parentheses are shown. Adjusted odds ratios for high CMI were estimated using age and histories of smoking and habitual exercise as other explanatory variables. Asterisks denote significantly lower odds ratios compared with a reference level of 1.00 (*, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01)
