Table 3 Associations between aminotransferase concentrations and metabolic Syndrome features

From: Aminotransferases are associated with insulin resistance and atherosclerosis in rheumatoid arthritis

Metabolic syndrome features ALT (u/l) AST (u/l)

Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 0.01 0.9 -0.05 0.7
Diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) 0.07 0.5 -0.03 0.8
  1. ALT, alanine aminotransferase; AST, aspartate aminotransferase; Log, logarithmically transformed; HOMA-IR, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance.
