  • women
  • Receiver operating characteristic analysis suggested that the most suitable cut-off point of WC for predicting incident DM was 85 cm for men and 80 cm for women. (biomedcentral.com)
  • MetS was associated with 3-4 times increased hazard for developing DM in men and 7-9 times in women. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Data from the present large cohort of workers suggest that WC cut-offs of 85 cm for men and 80 cm for women may be appropriate for predicting DM for Japanese. (biomedcentral.com)
  • hips
  • 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)
  • The hourglass shape is defined as a woman whose body measurements, the circumference of the bust, waist, and hips, are a wide bust, a narrow waist, and a wide hip that has similar measurements to that of the bust. (wikipedia.org)
  • The hourglass corset varied and developed as time passed but the design and intention of the corset remained the same at the core - the reduction of the waist line in order to create the ideal hourglass body shape where the bust and hips were similar in measurement while being much wider than the narrow waist. (wikipedia.org)
  • The three sizes are used mostly in fashion, and almost exclusively in reference to women, who, compared to men, are more likely to have a narrow waist relative to bust and hips. (wikipedia.org)
  • The waist is the part of the abdomen between the rib cage and hips. (wikipedia.org)
  • excess
  • Relative to the cancer early detection condition, the lifestyle change intervention is expected to improve fitness, increase fruit and vegetable intake, improve endothelial function, improve BMI, reduce excess waist circumference, improve blood pressure, and improve quality of life. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • triglyceride
  • Differences in body fat distribution are found to be associated with high blood pressure, high triglyceride, lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels and high fasting and post-oral glucose insulin levels The android, or male pattern, fat distribution has been associated with a higher incidence of coronary artery disease, in addition to an increase in resistance to insulin in both obese children and adolescents. (wikipedia.org)
  • size
  • 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)
  • Measurements taken from his uniform show that at his death he had a waist size of 47 inches (120 cm) and the inside brim of his hat measured 24 inches (61 cm) in circumference. (wikipedia.org)
  • weight
  • However, few observational studies have investigated the role of ED on long-term weight and waist circumference change. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Multiple linear regression analyses were performed to investigate the associations of ED with annual weight and waist circumference change. (ox.ac.uk)
  • After adjusting for baseline anthropometrics, demographic and lifestyle factors, follow-up duration and energy from beverages, ED was not associated with weight change, but significantly associated with waist circumference change overall. (ox.ac.uk)
  • 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)
  • The ABCP establishes height and weight standards for both male and female Soldiers. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example: a male (British fit -male) (johnny (dl).S. is: Height: 1m 86cm Waist: 80cm Weight: 180 Modeling Fasanella, Kathleen (2010-08-17). (wikipedia.org)
  • Measured average height, weight, and waist circumference for adults ages 20 years and over (U.S. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • Adjusted geometric means of HOMA-IR and prevalence odds of elevated HOMA-IR were progressively higher with increasing levels of waist circumference. (biomedcentral.com)
  • However it is unclear that such levels are ever actually attained since (a) the means to measure such levels are, as noted below, lacking in principle and inaccurate, and (b) 4-6% is generally considered a physiological minimum for human males. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus
  • Thus, the neck circumference above is rounded up to 17.5 There are two circumference sites for male Soldiers: 1. (wikipedia.org)
  • Older men are much more likely to be financially secure and further along in their career, thus able to provide greater economic resources to the female and any future offspring. (wikipedia.org)
  • Study
  • Study subjects included 4800 Japanese men aged 39 to 60 years. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Study subjects were male officials in the Self-Defense Forces (SDF) who received a pre-retirement health examination from January 1997 to March 2002, health check-up at age 50 years from April 2002 to September 2006, or health check-up at age 40 years from April 2005 to September 2006 at the Self-Defense Force Fukuoka Hospital.

  • In that study, worst offenders understated waist circumferences by 1.5 to 2 inches. (wikipedia.org)
  • counterparts
  • Men with high facial symmetry are rated as more attractive, dominant, sexy, and healthy than their counterparts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Japanese
  • A lower cut off of 90 cm has been recommended for South Asian and Chinese men, while a cut off of 85 cm has been recommended for Japanese men. (wikipedia.org)
