Table 3 The mean concentration of RBP4 in women stratified by BMI and estradiol (E2) levels

From: Serum retinol binding protein 4 is negatively related to estrogen in Chinese women with obesity: a cross-sectional study

Non-obese Obese
E2 >118.60 (pmol/L) E2 <118.60 (pmol/L) E2 >118.60 (pmol/L) E2 <118.60 (pmol/L)a,b,c
26.77 ± 3.47 (μg/ml) 29.64 ± 7.80 (μg/ml) 30.9 ± 7.18 (μg/ml) 37.08 ± 7.29 (μg/ml)
  1. a P <0.05 vs Non-obese group with high E2 level
  2. b P <0.05 vs Non-obese group with low E2 level
  3. c P <0.05 vs Obese group with high E2 level
  4. E2 corresponds to baseline estradiol levels. Cut-off point was set at median value
