Table 6 Logistic regression analysis when MS was used as a dependent variable, and age, sex, TSF, waist/hip ratio, insulin, leptin, LEPR Gln223Arg, LEP G2548A and BDNF Val66Met, were taken as independent variables

From: Measurement of the levels of leptin, BDNF associated with polymorphisms LEP G2548A, LEPR Gln223Arg and BDNF Val66Met in Thai with metabolic syndrome
