From: Adiponectin in eutrophic and obese children as a biomarker to predict metabolic syndrome and each of its components

Variable OR 95% CI P
Gender (female) 0.8 0.28; 2.46 0.737
Age (years) 0.8 0.57; 1.12 0.200
BMI (percentile) 2.0 1.20; 3.39 0.008

  1. Values obtained through logistic regression analysis, the final model included whole study population (obese and eutrophic children) adjusted for BMI (body mass index) percentile, gender, age and HOMA-IR values. *Tertiles used are according to nutritional status of each child as shown in Table 2.
