Table 2 Anthropometric and Metabolic characteristics of the sample (n = 202)

From: Prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and its association with metabolic derangements among children with obesity

Anthropometric / Metabolic Characteristics Mean (SD) Normal N (%) High/Abnormal N (%)
BMI SD Score 2.75 (0.658) 0 202 (100%)
Waist Circumference SD Score 3.00 (0.598) 7 (3.5) 193 (96.5)
Percentage Fat Mass 42.5 (5.08) 1 (0.5) 197 (99.5)
Insulin Fasting (microIU/ml) 14.0 (9.49) 96 (47.5) 106 (52.5)
Insulin 2 h (microIU/ml) 100.0 (81.4) 101 (50.2) 100 (49.8)
HOMA IR 1.53 (0.500) 95 (47.0) 107 (53.0)
High sensitivity C reactive protein (mg/l) 5.04 (14.658) 99 (51.0) 95 (49.0)
  1. Waist circumference SD score and Percentage fat mass values were not recorded in two and four children respectively due to practical difficulties. 2 h Insulin was not analyzed in n = 1 and hs-CRP was not analyzed in n = 8 due to sample inadequacy.
