Fig 4

Correlations between fasting glucose and gut microbiota in fecal samples of participants.

Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient was used to analyze the correlation between obese-T2DM (n = 40) and healthy (n = 20). (A) Correlation between fasting glucose and phylum Actinobacteria. (B) Correlation between fasting glucose and phylum Firmicutes (ρ = 0.246, p = 0.05). (C) Correlation between fasting glucose and phylum Proteobacteria (ρ = -0.253, p = 0.05). (D) Correlation between fasting glucose and Bacteroidetes (ρ = -0.205, p = 0.11).
