  • Independent variables: fasting and postload glucose2-hOGTT, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, PAI-1, Si, disposition indexFSIGT, basal insulin secretionOGTT, and waist circumference; 0.15 significance level for entry of variables into the model. Dependent variable = fasting plasma adiponectin concentration. FSIGT, frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test.
