A comparison of Body mass index and body fat percentage for predicting cardiovascular disease risk
Translational Metabolic Syndrome Research
Anthropometric indices such as body mass index (BMI) and percent body fat (PBF) are easily measurable and have been consistently reported to be associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its risk factors. Aims: We aimed to compare the association of several CVD risk factors with BMI and PBF to determine which of these adiposity indices had the greater predictive value. Methods and Materials: Data were derived from the MASHAD cohort study. The cohort was categorised into 4 groups: group 1doi:10.1016/j.tmsr.2020.06.001 fatcat:t6m6xiatjvgxvkwlue2ici2xte
