From: Health care utilization among complementary and alternative medicine users in a large military cohort

  Hospitalization Rate per 1,000 Unadjusted   Adjusted  
CAM use (n = 1,449) OR 95% CI OR 95% CI
Non-CAM Use (n = 26,260) 30.5 (800) 1.00   1.00  
CAM Use (n = 16,636) 39.0 (649) 1.29 1.16-1.43 1.04 0.93-1.17
   Provider-admin only (n = 5,103) 38.4 (196) 1.27 1.08-1.49 1.06 0.89-1.26
   Self-admin only (n = 4,439) 32.9 (146) 1.08 0.90-1.29 0.89 0.73-1.07
   Both (n = 7,094) 43.3 (307) 1.44 1.26-1.64 1.13 0.97-1.30
  1. A 1-year follow-up period from the time of enrollment into the Millennium Cohort Study 2004-2006 (N = 42896)*
  2. *Excludes hospitalizations for complications of pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium (ICD-9-CM 630-676).
  3. ORs and associated confidence intervals from multiple logistic regression were adjusted for sex, age, education, marital status, race/ethnicity, pay grade, branch of service, occupation, body mass index, smoking status, problem drinking, and differences in comorbidity using propensity scores. CIs that exclude 1.00 were significant at the p < 0.05 level.
