Table 4 Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals of being in dietary diversity scores > =2 or being in food secure or mild insecure status by characteristics of patients independently related to dietary diversity score or food secure status

From: Dietary diversity and food security status among heart failure patients in the north of Iran

  1. aTo predict dietary diversity scores > = 2 or being in food secure or mild insecure status based on patients’ characteristics, a backward stepwise multiple logistic regression was performed
  2. TC indicated total cholesterol, OR odds ratio, CI, confidence interval
