Table 2 RCD (%) in controls and diabetics with no or mild retinopathy

From: Associated risk factors in the early stage of diabetic retinopathy

  Control NDR MDR P (Control-NDR) P(Control-MDR) P (NDR-MDR)
SRCL 43.9 ± 1.8 42.4 ± 3.0 41.0 ± 2.7 < 0.001 < 0.001 0.004
DRCL 52.6 ± 3.0 49.9 ± 5.8 46.6 ± 6.1 < 0.001 < 0.001 0.001
  1. RCD = retinal capillary density; Control = control eyes; NDR = diabetic patients with no diabetic retinopathy; MDR = diabetic patients with mild diabetic retinopathy; SRCL = superficial retinal capillary layer; DRCL = deep retinal capillary layer
  2. P value for the comparisons between the three groups by ANOVA
  3. Bold P-value represents < 0.05
