Table 2 Relationships between plasma HDL-c or triglyceride levels and anthropometric, hormonal and biochemical parameters in obese groups and non-obese control subjects

From: Unacylated Ghrelin is associated with the isolated low HDL-cholesterol obese phenotype independently of insulin resistance and CRP level
