Table 4 Multivariable linear regression analysis demonstrating the relationship of the leptin/adiponectin (L/A) ratio with thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), age, sex, metabolic syndrome (MetS) components and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) in 67 subjects with MetS (A) and in 86 subjects without MetS (B)

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