|Sensitivity of saving costs (US$) per subject to different compliance levels of screening initiated at different ages|
|Different strategies||Reference||Initiation age of 25||Reference||Initiation age of 40||Reference||Initiation age of 60|
|Screening with diet intervention||6808.10||5057.48||3084.12||3964.56||2885.25||1726.41||2017.03||1095.13||449.56|
|Screening with exercise intervention||6868.67||5075.73||3091.46||3974.36||2893.45||1716.15||2079.19||1069.45||498.66|
|Screening with duo-intervention||6861.49||5032.46||3066.46||3903.28||2811.16||1765.19||2071.69||1054.01||489.85|
Data are saving costs (US$) per subject who received prevention strategies when the compliance level of screening were dropped to 80% and 60% respectively. The prevention strategies were still cost-saving at every initiation ages, though the declining level of compliance with screening had a great impact on that reduction of savings for all prevention strategies.
