Subject   st: adjusting variables in metanalysis

Dear all, 
I have more of a  statistical question and any help would be very useful. 
In the meta-analysis that I am currently working on, I am investigating the effect of a genetic variant with diabetes risk. We have used abstracted data from published studies and do not have access to raw data sets. Therefore, I have the OR (95%CI) for disease risk for 10 studies. Now I would like to adjust the already calculated OR for a variable such as BMI ( individual mean BMI is available for all studies). 
Is there a possibility to do this. 
I hope I have made my question clear. 
Suggestions would be of great help.
Best,
Vasan
