Table 5 Regression coefficients with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) from the linear regression models predicting lipids by the number of steps in day (fewer than 5600 steps 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
5600–9099 steps / day ≥ 9100 steps / day 5600–9099 steps / day ≥ 9100 steps / day
