Table 3 Multiple linear regression analysis of the lipid measures with the number of MetS components, HOMA-IR and serum HMW adiponectin of subjects categorized by sex

From: Relationships between lipid profiles and metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and serum high molecular adiponectin in Japanese community-dwelling adults

  1. MetS, Metabolic syndrome; HOMA-IR, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance; HMW, high molecular weight; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein. §HOMA-IR was calculated using the following formula; {fasting blood glucose (mg/dL) X immuno-reactive insulin (mU/mL)}/405. Adjusted for age were BMI, smoking status, alcohol consumption, SBP, DBP, and eGFR. Data for triglycerides, triglycerides/HDL cholesterol ratio, and HOMA-IR were skewed, and log-transformed for analysis.
