Table 3 Multivariable linear regression analysis demonstrating the relationship of the leptin/adiponectin (L/A) ratio with thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), age, sex and diabetes status and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) in 67 subjects with metabolic syndrome (MetS; A) and in 86 subjects without MetS (B)

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

  L/A ratio  
β P-value
A MetS (n = 67)
 Age −0.130 0.25
 Sex (women vs. men) 0.278 0.018
 T2DM −0.049 0.74
 hs-CRP 0.150 0.21
 TSH 0.289 0.018
B No MetS (n = 86)
 Age −0.076 0.39
 Sex (women vs. men) 0.431 <0.001
 T2DM 0.002 0.98
 hs-CRP 0.430 <0.001
 TSH −0.119 0.22
  1. T2DM: type 2 diabetes mellitus; β: standardized regression coefficient. The L/A ratio and hs-CRP are logarithmically transformed. Models are additionally adjusted for the use of antihypertensive medication, sulfonylurea and metformin
