Figure 3: Scatterplot of subject’s change in BMI -score and change in serum alanine aminotransferase at time intervals of 1–4 months, 5–8 months, 9–12 months, and greater than 1 year. ALT = alanine aminotransferase. BMI adjusted for age and sex using the 2000 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention growth charts and lambda, mu, and sigma method [17]. The association between changes in BMI -score and changes in serum alanine aminotransferase was assessed by Pearson correlation and is presented as correlation coefficient ( value).
