Odds Ratios and Relative Risks of T2D Diagnosis, by BMI Categories. Data source: Geisinger Health System electronic health records, January 2004–October 2011. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were estimated using logistic regression, adjusted for baseline demographic and clinical characteristics. Relative risks were estimating using the method of recycled predictions and 95% CIs were estimated from bootstrap replications. BMI categories: normal: 18.5–24.9 kg/m2; overweight: 25–29.9 kg/m2; Obesity Class I: 30–34.9 kg/m2; Obesity Class II: 35–39.9 kg/m2; Obesity Class III: ≥40 kg/m2.
