Table 6 Multivariate linear regression model for the association of the main study outcome (post-operative BMI) with marital status, practice of sport or exercise and age variables (N = 30) §

From: Short-term outcomes of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy among obesity patients in the northern west bank: a retrospective records review

  Post-operative BMI
Independent variables B SE Beta P- value (95% CI for B)
Age (years) 0.17 0.12 0.23 0.18 (−0.83-0.42)
Marital status (not married/married) 1.84 2.97 0.11 0.54 (−4.28-7.95)
Practice any kind of sport or exercise currently (no/yes) −7.33 2.60 −0.47 0.009 (−12.68- -1.98)*
  1. §Variables entered in the model are those with a P- value <0.05 in univariate analysis. SE, standard error; B, Unstandardized regression coefficient; Beta, Standardized regression coefficient; CI, confidence interval; BMI, body mass index [(weight (kilogram) divided by the square of height (meter)]. *Statistically significant (p <0.05). Enter regression method was used.
