Table 5 Multivariate linear regression models with physical activity measures as independent variables and 13.5 year cardiometabolic risk factors as the dependent variables (n = 290)

From: Active children are less adipose and insulin resistant in early adolescence; evidence from the Mysore Parthenon Cohort
