Table 3 Coefficients of determination for the association between HbA1c and fasting glucose with continuous anthropometric measures

From: The association between anthropometric measures and glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is different in Russian, Somali and Kurdish origin migrants compared with the general population in Finland: a cross-sectional population-based study

  1. R2, coefficient of determination; HbA1c glycated haemoglobin; FG fasting glucose
  2. BMI body mass index, WC waist circumference, WtHR waist-to-height ratio, WHR waist-to-hip ratio
  3. acould not be calculated because hip circumference was not measured in the Health 2011 Survey
