Why Waist to Hip Ratios are Important

Waist to hip ratios are an important factor that can help identify health risk.  Use the table below to help determine if you are at risk for certain disease (cardiovascular disease or diabetes, for example).  Take your waist measurement at just above the belly button, or around the smallest part of your waist.  Hip measurements are taken around the widest part of the hip and buttocks.  Divide your waist measurement by hip measurement to get the ratio.

Depositing body fat around the middle (waist) section of the body has been shown to be highly correlated with disease.
