Figure 2

Correlation between serum levels of AIM, adiponectin, leptin, or resistin and WBISI. Serum AIM levels were not correlated with WBISI, but serum adiponectin levels were positively and serum resistin and leptin levels were negatively correlated with WBISI. AIM, apoptosis inhibitor of macrophage; WBISI, whole body insulin sensitivity index [19]. Correlation coefficients were calculated by Spearman’s rank correlation analysis.
