Waist to height ratio

Waist to height ratio calculatorWaist to height ratio is a simple measurement for assessment of lifestyle risk and overweight. Compared to just measuring waist circumference, waist to height ratio is equally fair for short and tall persons. This calculator is valid for children and adults.

Instructions:
1. Measure your waist circumference at a horizontal line one inch above your belly button.
2. Enter waist circumference and height by turning the dials.

Ratio
0.47
OK
Waist
inches
80
Height
ft' in''
170

Background:

Measuring waist to height ratio is gaining popularity in the scientific society as several studies have found that this is a more valid measurement than BMI. Just measuring waist circumference is inherently biased for people taller or shorter than average population.

This calculator uses the criteria for interpretitation suggested by Ashwell.

Indices of abdominal obesity are better discriminators of cardiovascular risk factors than BMI: a meta-analysis.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog.
Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks
great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Many thanks!

Nevеrtheless think abοut if ʏou added some greɑt photos ᧐r videos
t᧐ give your posts more, "pop"! Уour cоntent is excellent but
with imawges аnd clips, tһis blog coulԀ unjdeniably ƅe one
