Abstract Metabolic syndrome is a main clinical challenge of global health which is growing universally. It would be resulted from over-consumption of energy, increased obesity, and lack of movement during life. The metabolic syndrome causes a five-fold increase in the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and a double increase in the risk of rising cardiovascular disease over the next 5–10 years. Based on this, more attention has been drawn to the diagnosis and treatment options of this disease. Nano...

It is widely claimed that in well-nourished populations, very low female waist–hip ratios (WHRs) together with low body mass indices (BMIs) are judged attractive by men because these features reliably indicate superior health and fertility. However, studies show that mortality rates are higher in women with low BMIs than in women with average BMIs and are inversely related to BMI in subsistence populations. Measures of current health in women of reproductive age have not been similarly studied. ...

This study attempts to bridge the research gap regarding the importance of dietary fiber in reducing metabolic syndrome (MetS) risk factors in young rural South Africans. A total of 627 individuals (309 males and 318 females) aged 18–30 years participated in the study. Dietary intake was measured using a validated 24-h recall method. The consumption of different types of dietary fiber (total, soluble, and insoluble) was calculated and presented as grams. Anthropometrics, blood pressure, fasting ...

Abstract Objective To assess the occurrence of central obesity and identify its predictors in urban Africans using anthropometric tools. Another objective was to evaluate the anthropometric indices and their interaction with various cardiovascular risk factors. Methods In an obesity survey in a major Nigerian city, we measured the prevalence of central obesity in 998 randomly selected men and women using the IDF (International Diabetes Federation) criteria. Normalized values of three anthropomet...

Summary Finding reliable estimates of parameters of subpopulations (areas) in small area estimation is an important problem especially when there are few or no samples in some areas. Clustering small areas on the basis of the Euclidean distance between their corresponding covariates is proposed to obtain smaller mean-squared prediction error (MSPE) for the predicted values of area means by using area level linear mixed models. We first propose a statistical test to investigate the homogeneity of...

Abstract Obesity is now in pandemic proportions. This accompanies, and is associated with, rises in related chronic diseases. Whether obesity is a direct causal factor for such disease, however, is not clear, thus justifying a lifestyle medicine approach to the problem. Hence, whilst a linear approach to energy balance may still be useful for individual management, a systems approach using a modified understanding of energy dynamics and including the range of determinants from proximal to distal...
