Glucotypes reveal new patterns of glucose dysregulation

Fig 3

Correlation between glycemic signature classes and measures of glucose homeostasis.

(A) Forest plots for each of the glucotypes. A Pearson’s correlation test was used to determine the correlation between the clinical metabolic tests—listed 1 per line—and the fraction of time spent in each glucotype class (S5 Data). The center dot line is the resulting correlation coefficient, with the line representing the corresponding 95% confidence interval. (B) Forest plot with the lines representing age and BMI. (C) OGTT 2hr is plotted against the fraction of time in the severe glucotype for each individual. The line of best fit is shown in blue with the 95% confidence interval shaded in gray. The correlation coefficient, r, was derived from a Pearson’s correlation test. OGTT 2hr, blood glucose concentration 2 hours after the start of oral glucose tolerance test; SSPG, steady-state plasma glucose.
