Plasma Lf levels in severely obese subjects.

<p>Correlations were tested between plasma Lf concentrations and <b>(A)</b> BMI, <b>(B)</b> insulin and <b>(C)</b> HOMA-IR in severely obese subjects without T2D. Pearson correlation coefficients of log-transformed variables and <i>P</i> values are shown in the graph (n = 62); <b>(D)</b> Plasma Lf concentrations in severely obese patients according to HOMA-IR tertiles and to the presence of T2D. * <i>P<</i>0.05.</p>
