Table 2 Correlations between adiponectin level and various clinical parameters

From: Urinary adiponectin concentration is positively associated with micro- and macro-vascular complications

  1. Age-, sex-, and eCcr-adjusted model.
  2. *Logarithmic transformation was performed due to a skewed distribution.
  3. Mean baPWV value was calculated as (Right baPWV + Left baPWV)/2.
  4. HbA1C glycated hemoglobin, HDL high density lipoprotein, LDL low density lipoprotein, HOMA-IR Homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance, BMI body mass index, baPWV brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity, A/C ratio albumin/creatinine ratio, eCcr estimated creatinine clearance rate.
