Relationship between BMI and serum adiponectin levels or estrone levels in controls

BMI (kg/m2)
<21.0≥21.0, <23.0≥23.0
Adiponectin (μg/ml)10.02 ± 0.669.48 ± 0.696.97 ± 0.52a
Estrone (pg/ml)4.66 ± 0.706.81 ± 1.109.49 ± 1.38b
  • a P < 0.001 when compared with the BMI <21.0 kg/m2 group.

  • b P < 0.005 when compared with the BMI <21.0 kg/m2 group.
