BMI: body mass index; HOMA: Homeostasis Model Assessment. No significant relationships were found between birth size and BMI, percent body fat, leptin, basal glucose or 2 h GTT values, systolic or diastolic blood pressure z-scores, peripheral arterial tomography, HDL, LDL, or triglyceride values, maternal age, ethnicity, age of menarche, Tanner puberty stage, or the presence of acne, hirsuitism, or acanthosis.
