  1. The OR and CI for the diabetes complications across tertiles categories of dietary pattern scores were tested by binary logistic regression. *Adjusted for age, gender, marital status, educational level, family size, monthly income, diabetes duration, type of diabetes medications used, received diabetes care instructions, history of smoking, physical activity (Total MET), BMI (kg/m2), WC (cm), FPG level (mg/dl), TGs level (mg/dl) and HDL-c level (mg/dl). P value less than 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval
