Association of Novel Anthropometric Indexes with Metabolic Syndrome

About this Research Topic

Obesity is related to cardiometabolic risk factors (CMRFs), including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, which can lead to cardiometabolic diseases.

The prevalence of overweight and obesity has been increasing in both developed and developing countries. Obesity is related to cardiometabolic risk factors (CMRFs), including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, which can lead to cardiometabolic diseases. Weight (kg)/height (m)2 (BMI) has been used since 1970 to classify obesity in adults. One of the main limitations of BMI is the fact that BMI measures excess weight rather than excess fat. Recently, novel anthropometric measures such as a body shape index, hip index, body surface area, vertical trunk circumference, and Visceral adiposity index have been developed to overcome the BMI limitations. These indices are risk factors for cardiovascular disease as well as mortality independent of the BMI category.

This Research Topic aims:
• To find the association between novel anthropometric indices with cardiometabolic risk factors
• To compare the association between novel anthropometric indices and traditional anthropometric indices with cardiometabolic risk factors 


We welcome all review, or systematic review, or observational studies, in the assessment of "Association of novel anthropometric indices with cardiometabolic risk factors"


Keywords: Body shape index, hip index, body surface area, vertical trunk circumference, Visceral adiposity index, waist-to-height ratio, neck circumference, wrist circumference, metabolically phenotypes of obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiometabolic risk factor
