Table 3 Subgroup analysis for association between CHHF and adipokines after dividing women by the WHR median

From: Effects of cold sensitivity in the extremities on circulating adiponectin levels and metabolic syndrome in women

  Low WHRb High WHRb
Traitsa Beta (95% CI) P value Beta (95% CI) P value
Adiponectin (μg/mL) 1.11 (−1.16, 1.43) 0.412 1.31 (1.05, 1.65) 2.00 × 10-2
Leptin (ng/mL) 1.74 (−11.9, 3.92) 0.571 1.05 (−15.0, 13.6) 0.971
LAR −1.08 (−1.60, 1.38) 0.709 −1.23 (−1.68, 1.11) 0.191
  1. aln-transformed: adiponectin and LAR
  2. bWomen (n = 649) were divided into two subgroups via the WHR median: low WHR women (n = 326; 45 non-CHHF, 105 intermediate, and 176 CHHF) and high WHR women (n = 323; 85 non-CHHF, 124 intermediate, and 114 CHHF)
  3. Linear regression, adjusting for age, diastolic blood pressure, triglycerides (ln-transformed), menopausal status, and body mass index
  4. Abbreviations: CHHF cold hypersensitivity in the hands and feet, WHR waist-to-hip ratio, CI confidence interval, LAR, Leptin-to-adiponectin ratio
