Waist To Height Ratio Calculator
mass index (BMI) is an index widely used to define obesity. BMI
does not always accurately indicate the degree of fatness. The degree
of central fat distribution may be more closely tied to metabolic
risks than BMI. Measurement of the degree of central fat distribution
thus appears to be important for the early detection of subsequent
health risks, even among those of normal weight. Waist-to-height
ratio (W/Ht) corresponds better to metabolic risk than BMI.
