Table 3 Correlations between change in Zung SDS and percentage change based on different variables after body weight reduction

From: Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, but not body weight, correlated with a reduction in depression scale scores in men with metabolic syndrome: a prospective weight-reduction study

  r P
Body weight (%) 0.14 0.414

  1. ALT = alanine aminotransferase, AST = aspartate aminotransferase, BDNF = brain-derived neurotrophic factor, BP = blood pressure, CRP = C-reactive protein, HDL = high-density lipoprotein, HOMA-IR = homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance, LDL = low-density lipoprotein, Zung SDS = Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale.
