Table 4 Adjusted multivariable GEE models with total sitting time (hrs/day)

From: The combined effect of physical activity and sedentary behavior on subclinical atherosclerosis: a cross-sectional study among Mexican Americans

  Adjusted Mean difference of cIMT (95% CI) cIMT ≥75% (adjusted OR, 95% CI) Presence of Plaque (adjusted OR, 95% CI)
Physical Activity (referent = no activity)
 Low Activity −0.009 (− 0.04–0.02) 0.54 (0.09–3.41) 1.18 (0.35–3.94)
 Moderate Activity 0.010 (− 0.03–0.05) 1.17 (0.45–3.07) 0.27 (0.07–0.99)*
 High Activity − 0.014 (− 0.05–0.02) 1.28 (0.49–3.39) 0.41 (0.14–1.15)
Total Sitting Time (hrs/day) 0.001 (−0.003–0.004) 0.95 (0.89–1.02) 1.02 (0.94–1.09)
  1. cIMT model adjusted for age, gender, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and HBA1c (n = 336)
  2. cIMT ≥75% model adjusted for age, gender, cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, and HBA1c (n = 336)
  3. Plaque model adjusted for age, gender, and systolic blood pressure (n = 340)
  4. hrs/day is the weighted average of sitting on a typical weekday and weekend day
  5. *, p < 0.05
