More recently, there has been speculation regarding the relative contributions of VAT and liver adiposity to the development of metabolic disease [47, 54].
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of BMI, WC, C Index, and WHtR in detecting central adiposity, the ROC curve analysis was performed.
The peripheral adiposity determined by the skinfolds thickness, and central adiposity evaluated by waist and hip circumferences were positively and similarly correlated with hsCRP levels.
The adiposity index was calculated as (total body fat/final BW) x 100 (25).
Distribution of adiposity needs to be taken into account even in normal weight and BMI patients while judging the cardiovascular and metabolic risk.
