Table 2 Correlation coefficients between age, BMI, and parameters of abdominal fat area.

From: Visceral fat dominant distribution in male type 2 diabetic patients is closely related to hepatic insulin resistance, irrespective of body type

  3. DSF = deep subcutaneous fat
  4. VF = visceral abdominal fat
  5. SF = subcutaneous abdominal fat
  6. FM = total body fat mass
