Table 4 Ordinal regression analysis of factors associated with NAFLD scoring.

From: Strong association between non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and low 25(OH) vitamin D levels in an adult population with normal serum liver enzymes

  SE P-value
25(OH) vitamin D 0.01 0.001
Age 0.01 < 0.001
Sex 0.18 n.s.
BMI 0.03 < 0.001
Waist circumference 0.01 < 0.001
FBG 1.5 < 0.001
Total cholesterol 0.003 n.s.
HDL-cholesterol 0.01 < 0.001
LDL-cholesterol 0.003 n.s.
Triglycerides 0.7 < 0.001
HOMA-IR 0.8 < 0.001
Fasting insulin 0.6 < 0.001
  1. SE, standard error of β. P-values < 0.05 were considered significant. HOMA-IR, FBG and triglycerides, were considered as log-values in the analysis.
  2. FBG, fasting blood glucose; HDL, high density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HOMA-IR, homeostatis model assessment of insulin resistance.
