Logistic regression analysis for the patients achieving HbA1c <7.0%
Characteristics Wald X2 P value Odds ratio 95% CI

Treatment regimen (vs OAD+insulin)
OAD+GLP1 22.6761 <0.0001 1.600 1.319-1.941
1 OAD 1663.4200 <0.0001 1.649 1.610-1.690

≥3 OADs 88.2917 <0.0001 1.183 1.142-1.225

Results interpretation: Patients who are elderly, female, with shorter duration of diabetes, less BMI, without complications, performed SMBG recently, treated with OAD only or OAD+GLP1 were more likely to attain the HbA1c targets.

BMI, body mass index; CI, confidence interval; GLP-1 RA, glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist; OAD, oral antidiabetes drug; SMBG, self-monitored blood glucose.
