Table 3 Odds ratios for hyperglycemia of subjects with vs. subjects without high cardiometabolic index (CMI)

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 Overall subjects
Hyperglycemia       
 Crude OR 2.31 (2.06-2.60)* 2.08 (1.69–2.57)* 1.83 (1.62–2.06)*,** 2.22 (1.89–2.61)* 2.38 (1.59–3.55)* 2.13 (1.99–2.28)*
 Adjusted OR 2.31 (2.05-2.60) * 2.10 (1.69–2.62)* 1.89 (1.67–2.14)* 2.32 (1.97–2.73)* 2.42 (1.61–3.66)* 2.17 (2.02–2.33)*
 OR of interaction term 1.00 0.89 (0.69–1.13) 0.80 (0.67–0.94)* 0.98 (0.80–1.20) 1.03 (0.68–1.58)
  1. Crude and adjusted odds ratios (ORs) with their 95 % confidence intervals in the parentheses are shown. Adjusted odds ratios for hyperglycemia were estimated using age, smoking and habitual exercise as other explanatory variables. In analysis of overall subjects, alcohol drinking was also included in the explanatory variables. Odds ratios of the interaction term consisting of alcohol intake (each drinker category vs. nondrinkers) and CMI (high vs. not high) were estimated by using alcohol intake, CMI, the interaction term, age, smoking and habitual exercise as explanatory variables. Asterisks denote significantly higher or lower odds ratios compared with a reference level of 1.00 (*, p < 0.01) and a significantly lower odds ratio compared with nondrinkers (**, p < 0.01)
