  1. Pearson’s bivariate correlations between anthropometric/biochemical parameters and fasting plasma irisin levels. Homeostatic model assessment for beta cell function (HOMA β) and insulin sensitivity (HOMA-S). Data are represented as positive or negative correlation coefficients with p values < 0.05 indicating statistical significance (in italic text)
