Table 3 Correlations between SHBG levels and anthropometric and physiologic parameters in subjects with obesity. Multivariate linear regression was applied to determine correlations between SHBG levels and other variables only in subjects with obesity. 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; BMI-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
