Table 3 Multiple linear regression analysis of factors correlated with lumbar spine and femoral neck DXA T-scores

From: Dairy calcium intake and lifestyle risk factors for bone loss in hiv-infected and uninfected mediterranean subjects

  1. a Variables excluded from the model for lumbar spine DXA T-score assessment: bone alkaline phosphatase, drug addiction , time since HIV diagnosis, score of ART and PI exposure.
  2. b Variables excluded from the model for femoral neck DXA T-score assessment: BMI score, Bone alkaline phosphatase, time since HIV diagnosis, score of ART and PI exposure, HIV/HCV co-infection.
