Table 2 Mean differences between paired observations at baseline and month 6 in patients with baseline and follow-up values and not lost to follow-up

From: Treating 4,000 diabetic patients in Cambodia, a high-prevalence but resource-limited setting: a 5-year study

  Mean difference between baseline and month 6 (95% CI)* P value for t test
RBG, mg/dl (n = 2,725) 108.7 (103.1 to 114.3) < 0.001
HbA1c, % (n = 824) 2.7 (2.3 to 3.0) < 0.001
SBP, mm Hg (n = 801) 13.5 (12.1 to 14.9) < 0.001
DBP, mm Hg (n = 688) 11.7 (10.8 to 12.6) < 0.001
BMI, kg/m2 (n = 1,364) -0.4 (-0.5 to -0.3) < 0.001
  1. For BMI, only patients with elevated baseline BMI (≥23.0) were included in the analysis. For SBP, only patients with elevated baseline SBP (>130 mm Hg) were included in the analysis. For DBP, only patients with elevated baseline DBP (>80 mm Hg) were included in the analysis.
  2. *Mean difference between two observations taken on each individual.
  3. BMI = body mass index; DBP = diastolic blood pressure; RBG = random blood glucose; SBP = systolic blood pressure.
