Table 2 Correlation between serum vaspin levels and sympathetic (LFa) and parasympathetic (RFa) activity at rest and during clinical tests in the NGT group and in the subgroups with (NGT + MetS) and without (NGT – MetS) Metabolic syndrome

From: Is vaspin related to cardio-metabolic status and autonomic function in early stages of glucose intolerance and in metabolic syndrome?
