  • hips
  • When women reach menopause and the estrogen produced by ovaries declines, fat migrates from their buttocks, hips and thighs to their waists. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research shows that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies who carry more weight around the hips. (wikipedia.org)
  • mortality
  • In this study, the authors investigated the associations between various body measurements at baseline, mainly BMI and waist circumference, and the risk of prostate cancer incidence, with a focus on tumour stage and grade, and on mortality from prostate cancer. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • 2018
  • The Diabetes Canada 2018 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada provides a guideline for waist circumference targets on based gender and ethnicity. (diabetes.ca)
  • findings
  • The findings of the current study indicated that higher levels of fitness were correlated with a smaller waist size, and a lower degree of inflammation that was independent of BMI. (worldhealth.net)
  • ratios
  • The National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) states that women with waist-hip ratios of more than 0.8, and men with more than 1.0, are at increased health risk because of their fat distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • strongly
  • Higher waist and hip size are more strongly associated with heart attack risk than overall obesity, especially among women, according to new research from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. (lesliebeck.com)
  • large
  • Compared with men with normal WCs, those with "moderately increased" waists were 2.40 times more likely to develop diabetes and those with "large" waists were 7.58 times more likely to meet the same fate. (latimes.com)
  • For women, the corresponding risk figures were 3.02 for those with "moderately increased" waists and 11.6 for those with "large" waists. (latimes.com)
  • Results showed that a very large waist circumference-120 centimeters/47 inches in men and 110 centimeters/42 inches for women-doubled a patient's risk of death. (healthimaging.com)
  • women
  • Eric J. Jacobs, PhD, of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, and colleagues used data from 48,500 men and 56,343 women aged 50 and older who participated in a survey-the Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition cohort-in 1997, providing information about weight and waist circumference. (healthimaging.com)
  • Modeling agencies require women to maintain measurements of: weight 90-120 pounds, height 68-71 inches and waist 22-26 inches around. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the European Union waist circumference of ≥ 94 cm(~37") in men and ≥ 80 cm(~31.5") in non pregnant women are used as cut offs for central obesity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Results
  • Results revealed significant negative correlations for both BMI and waist circumference where regional gray matter effects were largest within the hypothalamus and further encompassed prefrontal, anterior temporal and inferior parietal cortices, and the cerebellum. (nih.gov)
  • height
  • Each individual had blood samples taken to evaluate the level of C-reactive protein of nonspecific biomarkers of low grade inflammation that were present within their bodies detectable in the blood, and their weight, height, waist circumference documented. (worldhealth.net)
  • Central
  • We therefore investigated the effects of both BMI and waist circumference on local gray matter volumes in a group of 115 healthy subjects screened to exclude physical or mental disorders that might affect the central nervous system. (nih.gov)
  • found
  • In 2010, Abram Sauer of Esquire measured several pairs of dress pants with a nominal waist size of 36 at different U.S. retailers and found that actual measurements ranged from 37 to 41 inches. (wikipedia.org)
  • smaller
  • While the nominal inseam is fairly accurate, the nominal waist may be quite a bit smaller than the actual waist, in U.S. sizes. (wikipedia.org)
  • studies
  • While prior studies have revealed negative associations between gray matter tissue volumes and BMI, the relationship with respect to waist circumference remains largely unexplored. (nih.gov)
  • tape
  • According to the World Health Organisation's data gathering protocol, the waist circumference should be measured at the midpoint between the lower margin of the last palpable rib and the top of the iliac crest, using a stretch‐resistant tape that provides a constant 100 g tension.
