Figure 6: Black bars show Spearman correlation coefficients (r) for regression analyses of ln triglyceride and ln HOMA2-IR versus abdominal subcutaneous fat (ASF) and intraperitoneal fat (IPF) in women and men. White bars show partial correlation coefficients after adjustment for the opposite fat compartment. For this analysis, all men and all women were combined. For triglycerides, ASF was modestly correlated but became negatively correlated after adjustment for IPF. IPF was more strongly correlated with triglycerides and remained equally correlated after adjustment for ASF. Both ASF and IPF were strongly correlated with ln HOMA2-IR, but after adjustment for the opposing compartment, partial correlation coefficient was diminished. All correlation coefficients were significant at a level of .
