Table 4 Association of Alcohol Drinking Frequency with the Number of Cardiometabolic Risk Factors by Quintile of Alcohol Intake Among 2,029 Male Drinkers -- Results of Poisson Regression Analysis

From: Relationship between Dietary and Other Lifestyle Habits and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Men

Alcohol intake (range, ml/day) Person N Regression coefficient of drinking frequency P
1.25-12.5 405 -0.007 0.87
12.8-24.3 406 -0.074 <0.01
24.5-39.7 408 -0.13 <0.01
39.9-62.5 393 -0.109 <0.01
62.7-250.0 393 -0.086 0.047
  1. Results of analysis by Poisson regression models on association between alcohol drinking frequency and the number of CMRF by quintile of alcohol intake among 2,029 male drinkers are shown. Covariates included besides alcohol intake frequency were age, IPAQ classification, type of work (mostly sitting, mostly standing, work including heavy physical activity for about one hour, work including heavy physical activity for about 2 hours, or other types; mostly sitting served as a reference), smoking (non-, past, or current smoker; non-smoker served as a reference), percentage energy intake of protein, fat, and carbohydrate (%kcal), and total energy intake (kcal). IPAQ = International Physical Activity Questionnaire classification.
