Table 2 Univariate relationships of leptin, adiponectin and the leptin/adiponectin (L/A) ratio with thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (free T4) in 67 subjects with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and in 86 subjects without MetS

From: Increased leptin/adiponectin ratio relates to low-normal thyroid function in metabolic syndrome
