Table 4 Regression coefficients with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) from the linear regression models predicting lipids by the number of breaks in a day (fewer than 28 breaks in a day used as the reference group)

From: Higher number of steps and breaks during sedentary behaviour are associated with better lipid profiles

  Unadjusted Adjusteda
Breaks 28–40.9 / day Breaks 41+ / day Breaks 28–40.9 / day Breaks 41+ / day
