Table 4 Summary of findings

From: The impact of a low-calorie, low-glycemic diet on systemic lupus erythematosus: a systematic review

  1. The basis for the assumed risk (e.g. the median control group risk across studies) is provided in footnotes. The corresponding risk (and its 95% confidence interval) is based on the assumed risk in the comparison group and the relative effect of the intervention (and its 95% CI)
  2. CI = confidence interval; MD = mean difference; RR = risk ratio; SLEDAI = Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index; HDL = high-density lipoprotein; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; a = There is a selection and detection bias; b = Small sample size; c = Detection bias; d = Small sample size and small number of events; e = Few patients and very large confidence interval (> 0.5)
