Figure 4

Comparison of HOMA-β between the LIR and HIL groups. LIR group: women with low insulin resistance, HIR group: women with high insulin resistance. HOMA-β: Homeostasis model assessment of β-cell function. Comparison between groups was made using Welch’s t test. The black bar represents the median. The interquartile range is represented by a box. Values exceeding 1.5 IQR were represented by closed squares. The HOMA-β of the LIR group is significantly lower than that of the HIR group.
