Table 3 Pearson correlation of adiponectin and leptin with body composition parameters and lipoproteins in men and women. Data from Indian men and Caucasian men were pooled for analysis in men and data from Indian women and Caucasian women were pooled for analysis in women

From: Leptin and adiponectin in relation to body fat percentage, waist to hip ratio and the apoB/apoA1 ratio in Asian Indian and Caucasian men and women

  1. Bold and italicized text indicates significant values. BMI = body mass index; BF% = body fat percentage; WHR = waist to hip ratio; WC = waist circumference; HC = hip circumference; apoB = apolipoprotein B; apoA1 = apolipoprotein A1; TC = total cholesterol; HDL-C = high density lipoprotein cholesterol; TC/HDL-C = TC to HDL-C ratio; apoB/apoA1 = apoB to apoA1 ratio.
