OBJECTIVE The relationship between serum osteocalcin levels and body fat distribution remains unclear. This study aimed to investigate the association between serum osteocalcin levels and visceral fat area (VFA) in Chinese men. DESIGN Total serum osteocalcin levels were measured in 1768 Chinese men (22-75 yr old) by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay. VFA was quantified via magnetic resonance imaging. Correlation analyses were carried out for serum osteocalcin levels and clinical parameters… CONTINUE READING
