Table 4 Correlations between the number of diagnostic criteria of metabolic syndrome met by the patients

From: New adipokines vaspin and omentin. Circulating levels and gene expression in adipose tissue from morbidly obese women

  Number of criteria of Metabolic syndrome
Variables r p-value
VASPIN (μg/L) -0.209 0.083
OMENTIN (μg/L) -0.264 0.045
BMI (kg/m 2 ) 0.737 <0.0001
WC (cm) 0.783 <0.0001
HOMA2-IR 0.589 <0.0001
Glucose (mg/dL) 0.710 <0.0001
SBP (mm Hg) 0.636 <0.0001
DBP (mm Hg) 0.250 0.006
HDL-C (mg/dL) -0.750 <0.0001
Triglycerides (mg/dL) 0.704 <0.0001
  1. Vaspin and omentin circulating levels and different parameters.
  2. BMI: body mass index, WC: waist circumference, HOMA2-IR: homeostatic model assessment method insulin resistance, SBP: systolic blood pressure, DBP: diastolic blood pressure.
  3. Bolded p-values indicate statistically significant Spearman's correlations (p < 0.05).
