Table 2 Means and standard deviations for body mass and fatigue at admission and discharge by gender

From: Pediatric quality of life multidimensional fatigue scale (PedsQL-MFS) detects the effects of a 3-week Inpatient body weight reduction program for children and adolescents with obesity

Measure Gender Admission M (SD) Discharge M (SD) Paired-group t-test
BM (kg) Females (n = 64) 99.0 (16.3) 94.7 (15.6) t(63) = 16.84, p < .001
Males (n = 36) 114.0 (19.7) 107.9 (17.9) t(35) = 14.14, p < .001
BMI SDS Females (n = 64) 3.01 (0.46) 2.84 (0.48) t(63) = 17.75, p < .001
Males (n = 35) 3.08 (0.52) 2.85 (0.52) t(34) = 16.92, p < .001
Total fatigue Females (n = 63) 23.5 (11.5) 15.6 (9.7) t(62) = 6.41, p < .001
Males (n = 35) 18.4 (9.1) 13.4 (9.3) t(34) = 4.31, p < .001
Sleep/rest fatigue Females (n = 63) 8.56 (4.86) 6.73 (4.50) t(62) = 2.97, p = .004
Males (n = 36) 6.94 (4.45) 5.81 (4.71) t(35) = 2.10, p = .043
General fatigue Females (n = 64) 7.94 (4.02) 5.00 (3.65) t(63) = 5.76, p < .001
Males (n = 36) 6.28 (4.11) 4.06 (3.60) t(35) = 4.70, p < .001
Cognitive fatigue Females (n = 63) 6.70 (5.24) 4.43 (4.37) t(62) = 3.85, p < .001
