Analysis of waist:hip and waist:thigh ratios in a population of obese children

Analysis of waist:hip and waist:thigh ratios in a population of obese children

Clinica Dietologica 18(5): 387-391

Waist:hip (W:H) and waist:thigh (W:T) ratios were estimated in 193 normal-weight (NW) and 158 obese schoolchildren in San Donato, Italy. W:H ratio was significantly greater in boys than girls of NW (0.89 and 0.85, respectively) but were not significantly different in obese boys and girls (0.92 and 0.91). There were significant differences between W:H ratios for NW and obese children considered as a whole (0.87 and 0.91) or divided according to sex.
