Abstract Objective The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between obesity-related indicators such as Body Mass Index (BMI) and A Body Shape Index (ABSI) and chronic diseases in Korean adults. Methods Data from the Sixth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES 6th) from 2013 to 2015 were analyzed. The total of 13,155 participants were selected for this analysis. The primary analysis was based on Chi-square test and multivariate logistic regression analysis to identify that BMI and ABSI were related to prevalence of diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. Results After adjustment for covariates, the OR for hypertension of ABSI Q3 was significantly lower than the reference group (ABSI Q1), but there were not statistically significant in diabetes and dyslipidemia (Diabetes: OR 0.888, 95%CI 0.641–1.231; Hypertension: OR 0.723, 95% CI 0.555–0.942; Dyslipidemia: OR 0.959, 95%CI 0.717–1.282). According to BMI, adjusted OR of overweight group was significantly higher in diabetes (OR: 1.38, 95% CI: 1.08–1.78), hypertension (OR: 1.889, 95% CI:1.533–2.328) and dyslipidemia (OR: 1.330, 95% CI: 1.059–1.670) than that of reference group (Normal). Conclusion Despite the limitation of using BMI as a obesity-related indicator, due to the fact that muscle and fat accumulation is not considered, BMI is a better anthropometry investigator of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia for Koreans than ABSI.

Whole-genome re-sequencing, alignment and annotation analyses were undertaken for 12 sires representing four important cattle breeds in Brazil: Guzerat (multi-purpose), Gyr, Girolando and Holstein (dairy production). A total of approximately 4.3 billion reads from an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer generated for each animal 10.7 to 16.4-fold genome coverage. A total of 27,441,279 single nucleotide variations (SNVs) and 3,828,041 insertions/deletions (InDels) were detected in the samples, of which ...

Objective Studies evaluating the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and mortality demonstrate a U-shaped association. To expand, this study evaluated the relationship between adiposity indices, a body shape index (ABSI) and body adiposity index (BAI), and mortality in 77,505 postmenopausal women. Methods A prospective cohort analysis was conducted in the Women's Health Initiative to ascertain the independent relationships between adiposity indices and mortality in order to inform on the ...

Objective Among indirect measures of visceral adiposity, A Body Shape Index (ABSI), which is defined as waist circumference (WC)/(body mass index (BMI)2/3×height1/2), is unique in that ABSI is positively correlated with visceral adiposity and is supposed to be independent of BMI. ABSI has been also shown to be linearly and positively associated with visceral fat mass and all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the general population. It is, however, uncertain whether ABSI could be associat...

Background/Objectives Recently, a body shape index (ABSI) was reported to predict all-cause mortality independently of body mass index (BMI) in Americans. This study aimed to evaluate whether ABSI is applicable to Japanese adults as a predictor for development of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.

Purpose A body shape index (ABSI) has been proposed as a possible improvement over waist circumference (WC) as a marker of abdominal adiposity because it removes the correlation of WC with body mass index (BMI) and with height. We assessed the association of ABSI with four obesity-related cancers compared to that of other anthropometric measures of adiposity.

Background Overweight and obesity prevalence has risen dramatically in recent decades. While it is known that overweight and obesity is associated with a wide range of chronic diseases, the cumulative burden of chronic disease in the population associated with overweight and obesity is not well quantified. The aims of this paper were to examine the associations between BMI and chronic disease prevalence; to calculate Population Attributable Fractions (PAFs) associated with overweight and obesity...

Television (TV) viewing has been associated with obesity although the effects of specific TV content on health and other behaviours remains unknown. We examined the association between watching sport on TV, physical activity levels, and risk of obesity.

Abstract Objective The regulation of appetite and energy intake is influenced by different types of body hormones. Obesity as well as different types of exercise training affects the appetite regulations hormones. Aim of this study was to investigate the response of total leptin and ghrelin hormones as well as perception of hunger to resistance exercise program in different gender obese subjects. Methods Twelve central obese subjects participated in this study, they were subdivided according to ...
