  1. Skinfold and body circumferences as measures of body fat patterning in a french female active population : relationships with the metabolic risk profile.

    Article - En anglais

    Body mass index (BMI), various anthropometric indices of abdominal fat distribution and some metabolic variables (blood lipids, fasting glucose, blood pressure) were measured in 408 French-born women from an occupational population who volunteered for the study.

    The aim of the study was to determine the best index for describing the relationships between the body fat pattern and the metabolic risk profile.

    The four age-adjusted circumference ratios (waist/hip, waist/thigh, xiphoid/hip, xiphoid/thigh) showed similar associations with the metabolic variables whereas the three age-adjusted skinfold ratios (epigastric/thigh, mesogastric/thigh, hypotastric/thigh) tended to be more weakly associated with the metabolic variables, particularly with apolipoprotein (Apo) B and fasting glucose.
