Table 3 The independent correlation between IGF-1 SDS on LDL-C by multivariate piecewise linear regression

From: Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels are associated with insulin-like growth factor-1 in short-stature children and adolescents: a cross-sectional study

Inflection point of IGF-1 SDS β (95% CI) P value
< −2.0 0.08 (− 0.02, 0.17) 0.119
> −2.0 − 0.07 (− 0.12, − 0.02) 0.006
  1. Abbreviations: IGF-1 SDS: insulin likes growth factor-1 standard deviation scores; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein-cholesterol. Adjusted for weight, BMI SDS, TG, HDL-C, VLDL-C, pubertal stage. P < 0.05 is considered to be statistically significant
