Table 2 Correlations between SHBG levels and anthropometric and physiologic parameters in all subjects. Multivariate linear regression was applied to determine correlations between SHBG levels and other variables in all subjects. Bold font indicates P < 0.05. Model 1 adjusted for sex and age. Model 2 adjusted for sex, age, and BMI-SDS. ßstd, standardized beta coefficient from the regression model; BM-SDS, BMI standard deviation score; ADIPOQ, adiponectin; TAG, triacylglycerides; LDL-Cho, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HDL-Cho, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; n.a., not applicable

From: Relationship between adiponectin, TNFα, and SHBG in prepubertal children with obesity
