The undercarboxylated form of osteocalcin (ucOC) is an emerging marker of cardiovascular disease. It is unknown if ucOC in related to common cardiovascular risk markers in children. In offspring of families with and without metabolic syndrome (MetS+ and MetS- families), we assessed whether ucOC was related to a continuous metabolic syndrome score (MetS score) and to carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT).
