(ahajournals.org)
  • Our results now provide clear evidence that a simple measurement of waist circumference can identify overweight individuals (BMI 25-[29. with a large waist, whose risk of future diabetes is equivalent to that of obese people," Langenberg tells WebMD. (ajc.com)

  • Waist size can predict your diabetes risk, even if you are not obese, according to a new study. (ajc.com)
  • Diabetes experts have long used both body mass index (BMI), a measure of weight related to height, and waist size to predict risk. (ajc.com)

  • Some overweight men and women with very large waists have the same risk of diabetes as obese people, says researcher Claudia Langenberg, MD, PhD, of the Institute of Metabolic Science, Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, England. (ajc.com)
  • Overweight women with a large waist (35-plus) and overweight men with a large waist (40-plus) had a 10-year incidence of diabetes similar to that of obese people. (ajc.com)
  • Higher waist size and higher BMI were each linked with higher diabetes risk. (ajc.com)
  • Obese men with a large waist (40-plus) were 22 times more likely to develop diabetes than men with a low-normal BMI (18.5-22.4) and a smaller waist (less than 37 inches). (ajc.com)
  • Obese women with a large waist (35-plus) were nearly 32 times as likely to get diabetes than women of low-normal weight and a smaller waist (less than 31 inches). (ajc.com)
  • It can be difficult to measure the waist exactly the same way each time, says James T. Lane, MD, the Harold Hamm chair in clinical diabetes research at the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center at the University of Oklahoma. (ajc.com)
