  • Relationship between neck circumference and hypertension in the National Registry on Hypertension (the RENATA study) Background Hypertension (HT) is associated with greater proportion of body fat. (scielo.org.ar)
  • 0.01
  • For 1 kcal/g ED, the annual weight change was -42 g/year [95% confidence interval (CI): -112, and annual waist circumference change was 0.09 cm/year [95% CI: 0.01, 0. (ox.ac.uk)
  • hips
  • People who carry most of their weight around the waist (apple shaped) have a greater risk of heart disease and diabetes than do people with large hips and thighs (pear shaped). (onlymyhealth.com)
  • At the beginning of the study the women were asked to measure their waists and hips. (nih.gov)
  • excess fat
  • Women who carry excess fat around their waists were at greater risk of dying early from cancer or heart disease than were women with smaller waistlines, even if they were of normal weight, reported researchers from Harvard and the National Institutes of Health. (nih.gov)
  • Adult
  • Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the relationships between objective PA levels, CRF, and cardiac autonomic indices in adult, regular non-exercising female workers. (frontiersin.org)
  • The current results indicated that CRF was influential in enhancing HRV while incidental or non-exercise based PA was associated with greater autonomic reactivation in adult overweight women. (frontiersin.org)
  • hypothesis
  • To test the hypothesis that younger women with an android type of body fat distribution would probably have a greater risk of a future cardiovascular event, we designed a prospective autopsy study in which a detailed examination of coronary lesions was carried out. (ahajournals.org)
  • Our results support the hypothesis that abdominal body fat is especially important for development of colon cancer. (medica-tradefair.com)
  • findings
  • These preliminary findings suggest yoga may offer an effective intervention for improving sleep, mood, perceived stress, and blood pressure in older women with RLS. (hindawi.com)
  • We found a weak but significant association of polymorphisms at the 5' end of the IGF1 gene with breast cancer risk, particularly among women younger than 55 years, and a strong association of polymorphisms located in the 5' end of IGFBP3 with circulating levels of IGFBP-3, which confirms previous findings.

  • Because the majority of the women who took part in the study were white, the researchers do not know if their findings pertain to other groups of women or to men. (nih.gov)
  • RESULTS
  • These results indicate that the severity of clinically silent coronary lesions in younger female individuals is associated with increased WHR and increased amounts of intraperitoneal fat. (ahajournals.org)
  • These results emphasize the importance of WHR as a coronary risk indicator in younger women. (ahajournals.org)
  • Comparison of vibro-acoustic stimulation and acupressure effects in nonstress test results and its parameters in pregnant women. (ebscohost.com)
  • RESULTS: Except for the so-called 'health-conscious' cohort in the UK, energy-adjusted total PM intake ranged between 11.1 and 47.9 g day(-1) in women and 18.8 and 88.5 g day(-1) in men. (openrepository.com)
  • Our results indicate that, for body mass index values ≤35 kg m −2 , PWV measured externally with Complior or PulsePen validly reflect values obtained directly in the thoracic aorta through MRI. (ahajournals.org)
  • coronary artery
  • 10 It would be of great importance to focus research on young women who develop premature coronary artery disease despite the protective effect of estrogen. (ahajournals.org)
  • study
  • 11 In the Framingham Heart Study (3,313 patients, 53% were women), each 5-point increase in BMI (equivalent to a change from being slightly overweight to being obese) made a person 40% more likely to develop PAD. (hearthealthywomen.org)
  • In a study with 40 women, it was found that coconut oil reduced the total and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels as compared to soybean oil. (md-health.com)
  • In another study with 20 obese men, a dosage of 30 ml of coconut oil for 4 weeks caused a reduction of 1.1 inch in the waist circumference. (md-health.com)
  • DESIGN: In a prospective cohort study [the EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition)], we followed 84,511 men and 203,987 women for 5.1 y. (ox.ac.uk)

  • This qualitative study was performed to identify changes in the sexual lives of young women receiving breast cancer treatment. (ebscohost.com)
  • The study was conducted with eight exclusively self-defined heterosexual married women whose breast cancer treatments were ongoing in the ambulatory chemotherapy unit. (ebscohost.com)
  • Women with symptoms of PCOS will be recruited for the study and a diagnosis of PCOS will be determined by an obstetrician-gynecologist. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This study is based on a community based cross-sectional survey among 1802 rural women aged ≥15 years. (biomedcentral.com)
  • A cross-sectional study was performed on 3,835 subjects (1,672 females, 43.6%) aged 20 to 79 years who visited a health promotion center. (e-epih.org)
  • This study was conducted on a total of 4,243 subjects (1,868 females, 2,375 males) aged between 20-79 years old who had received a standard health check-up at the Health Promotion Center of Severance Hospital between October 2007 and March 2008. (e-epih.org)
  • Of the nationally representative sample of 8,028 Finnish men and women aged 30 years and older, 6,300 (78.5%) were included in the study. (biomedcentral.com)

  • To conduct the study, the researchers analyzed data from more than 44,000 women in the Nurses' Health study, which followed the health history of thousands of registered nurses in 11 states. (nih.gov)
  • All the women included in the study were registered nurses. (nih.gov)
  • The researchers examined the cause of death for all women who died over the course of the study. (nih.gov)
  • The purpose of this study was to assess the reliability of external carotid-femoral PWV values measured by well-validated external devices in comparison with MRI acquisitions of PWV and aortic mechanical properties in a population of obese subjects. (ahajournals.org)
  • 6072 men and women aged ≥ 25 years at study entry between May 1999 and December 2000, and aged ≤ 75 years, not pregnant and for whom there were waist circumference data at the follow-up survey between June 2004 and December 2005. (mja.com.au)

  • accumulation
  • The purpose was to find out whether the actual degree of coronary pathology, evaluated in terms of the extent of intima involved, narrowing caused by the lesions, and the microscopic composition of the lesions, is associated with increased abdominal accumulation of fat. (ahajournals.org)
