From: Current health status and its risk factors of the Tsarang villagers living at high altitude in the Mustang district of Nepal

Sex Variables Age ≤ 40 41 to ≤ 60 > 60 P for trend
Male Hb (g/dL)a 14.72 ± 1.44 14.51 ± 1.38 13.65 ± 1.31 0.0328
SpO2 (%)a 92.27 ± 1.59 89.53 ± 3.65 88.79 ± 4.51 < 0.0001
IHG/DM (%)b 6.67 (1.16–23.51) 45.95 (29.85–62.87) 60.00 (27.37–86.31) 0.0001
Female Hb (g/dL)a 12.61 ± 1.69 13.59 ± 1.62 14.05 ± 1.91 0.0004
SpO2 (%)a 92.39 ± 1.67 90.62 ± 2.87 88.09 ± 2.97 < 0.0001
IHG/DM (%)b 11.11 (3.62–27.00) 43.90 (28.82–60.11) 80.00 (55.73–93.39) < 0.0001
  1. Hb hemoglobin, IHG/DM intermediate hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus combined population
  2. aValues are mean ± SD. Data were analyzed by Jonckheere-Terpstra trend test for comparison of means of variables among age. SD, standard deviation
  3. bValues are represented as proportion of prevalence of IHG/DM (95% CI). Data were analyzed by Cochran-Armitage trend test for comparison of proportion of IHG/DM among age groups. CI, confidential interval
