Table 5 Multivariate linear regression analysis of variables related with percentage of changes of OGTT-derived insulin-sensitivity Matsuda index, in obese non-diabetic men with metabolic syndrome with weight loss >5% (N = 27)

From: Correlation between reduction of superior interventricular groove epicardial fat thickness and improvement of insulin resistance after weight loss in obese men

Predictor (*percentage of changes) Standardized coefficient β p
Body mass index 0.194 0.458
Subcutaneous fat area −0.673 0.006
Abdominal visceral fat area 0.030 0.877
SIVG EAT thickness −0.370 0.017
Leptin −0.269 0.065
  1. Dependent variable: percentage changes of Matsuda index.
  2. EAT: epicardial adipose tissue.
  3. SIVG: superior interventricular groove.
  4. OGTT-derived insulin-sensitivity index (Matsuda): 10,000⁄sqrt (FBG × FPI × G × I) where FPG is fasting glucose (mM), FPI is fasting insulin (μIU/ml), G is mean glucose (mM), I is mean insulin (μIU/ml) during the OGTT.
  5. *Percentage of changes = (after - before)/before weight loss.
