  1. Self-reported waist circumference compared with the'Waist Watcher'tape-measure to identify individuals at increased health risk through intra-abdominal fat accumulation.

    Article - En anglais

    We evaluated the accuracy of self-reported home-assessed and self-measured waist circumference in 101 men and eighty-three women aged 28-67 years.

    The main outcome measures were subjects'self-reported and self-measured waist circumference, and self-classification according to the previously defined waist action level 1 (940 mm in men, 800 mm in women) and action level 2 (1020mm in men, 880 mm in women), and waist circumference measured by the investigator using the'Waist Watcher'tape-measure, as the reference method.

    The mean errors (95% Cl limits of agreement) for subjects'self-reported waist circumference (self-reported minus reference ; mm) were - 67 (95% Cl - 210,77) in men and - 43 (95% CI - 211,123) in women, and for self-measured waist circumference (mm) using the'Waist Watcher' (self-measured minus reference) were - 5 (95% Cl - 62,52) in men and - 4 (95% CI - 50,42) in women.

    The proportions of subjects classified into waist action level I or action level 2 by the investigator were used as the reference method.

    Self-reported waist circumference of men and women respectively would be classified correctly in different categories based on action level 1 with sensitivities of 58.3 and 78.7%, and specificities of 92.5 and 91.7%, and action level 2 with sensitivities of 35.3 and 44.9%, and specificities of 98.5 and 90.7%.
