From: Correlations between serum concentration of three bone-derived factors and obesity and visceral fat accumulation in a cohort of middle aged men and women

Variables OCN FGF23 NGAL
BMI − 0.176** 0.125** 0.049
W − 0.187** 0.133** 0.094**
FM − 0.189** 0.152** 0.075*
Fat% − 0.184** 0.142** 0.064*
SFA − 0.112** 0.106** 0.027
VFA − 0.185** 0.148** 0.182**
  1. OCN, osteocalcin; FGF23, fibroblast growth factor 23; NGAL, neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin; BMI, body mass index; W, waist circumference; FM, fat mass; Fat%, fat percentage; SFA, subcutaneous fat area; VFA, visceral fat area
  2. Partial correlation analysis adjusted age, gender and menopausal status (in women). * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01
