Table 2 The adiponectin and aldosterone levels in 556 women belong to various groups

From: Higher blood aldosterone level in metabolic syndrome is independently related to adiposity and fasting plasma glucose

  1. *The abbreviations are the same as those in Table 1.
  2. *The values were expressed as Means ± SEM. *Those p values < 0.05 were in bold form.
  3. *Two missing for FAT % and one missing for HOMA-IR.
  4. *IFG: impaired fasting glucose: AC glucose ≥ 5.55 mM.
  5. *Insulin resistance was defined as HOMA-IR > higher quartile (1.864 in our study).
