  • chronic
  • As if we needed another reason to lose that bulging gut and eat a healthier diet, researchers are uncovering more links between abdominal fat and the chronic inflammation that leads to heart disease, diabetes and a host of other ailments. (wholehealthcenters.com)
  • The voltage of the QRS complexes is attenuated by its passage through a fatladen chest wall and is related to several factors, including the anatomy of the thorax, the degree of fatty infiltration of the heart, the degree of associated chronic lung disease, the increase in left ventricular muscle mass and, most importantly, the selection of the electrocardiographic leads for measuring voltage.

  • smaller waist
  • T allele carriers also had smaller waist circumference ( p = 0.009), lower triglyceride levels ( p = 0.006), and higher high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ( p = 0.008). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Asian and Indigenous people should have smaller waist measurements, and Pacific Islanders may need higher cut-off values. (mydr.com.au)
  • better indicator
  • Dr. Berger and Courtney Balentine, MD, co-author of the paper and a fellow in surgical research at BCM, sought to find out if a patient's waist circumference could serve as a better indicator than body mass index (BMI) in determining whether a patient would have difficulty recovering from surgery.

  • anthropometry
  • Therefore, anthropometry total body fat) can be directly measured with a calliper.12 and bioelectrical impedance are the most widely used Anthropometry may also give interesting information about methods when population size is big, whether no economic how body fat is distributed.

  • METHODS
  • The present study was aimed to determine the relationship be-tween WC and adverse pregnancy complications.Methods: In this prospective cohort study, 1140 nulliparous pregnant women at 1st trimester of pregnancy referred to health care centers in Tabriz, Iran were enrolled in 2009-2010.

  • Anthropometric indexes including (weight, height and WC) were measured using standardized measures and methods. (journaldatabase.info)
  • excess
  • Annual height velocity, weight gain, fat-free mass persist frequently into adulthood.4,5 With reference to and bone mineral content increase during this period in all obesity, the assessment of body composition is useful for adolescents, but the onset of puberty generally begins earlier the screening of excess body fat and its related metabolic in females than in males.1,2 The amount of fat mass in complications.

  • weight
  • For example, if an adult man with a large waist begins exercising regularly, his weight loss may be offset by increased muscle mass. (medindia.net)
  • Patients should be screened for obesity with annual calculation of BMI after measuring both height and weight ( 2 , 3 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • clinical
  • Clinical measures of central obesity may be better prognostic indicators, although investigation has been limited. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The associations between clinical measures of obesity (BMI, waist circumference [WC] and conicity index [ConI]) and time to a composite primary outcome of doubling of serum creatinine, commencement of renal replacement therapy or mortality were evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier method and multivariable Cox regression models.
