Table 3 Frequency categories of self-weighing and the incidence of diabetes

From: Self-weighing frequency and the incidence of type 2 diabetes: post hoc analysis of a cluster-randomized controlled trial

Variables Reference Low frequency (< 2 times/week) Middle frequency (2–4 times/week) High frequency (5–7 times/week)
Diabetes Incidence, per 100 person-years
 Intervention arm 4.0 2.9 1.6 1.3
 Control arm 2.8 2.6 2.0 1.7
Adjusted hazard ratio (95% CI)
 Intervention arm 1.00 0.81 (0.49–1.33) 0.56 (0.32–0.98) 0.43 (0.25–0.74)
 Control arm 1.00 0.93 (0.58–1.49) 0.75 (0.47–1.19) 0.54 (0.35–0.83)
  1. Cox regression analysis was used to calculate the HR and 95% CI. We adjusted for age, sex, and BMI and took into account the clustering effect
