Waist size can be used to predict diabetes than BMI
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2012 -- Considering diabetes is one of the most common and increasing illnesses around the world, a recent research study has found a leading factor in the human body which causes type 2 diabetes.
According to a 17-year research, belly fat is the leading factor which results in type 2 diabetes. The research studied around thirty thousand people of middle age, which revealed that belly fat and waist size increases the danger of diabetes.
Previously, Body Mass Index (BMI) was considered as the most useful way to predict and determine diabetes. However, researchers have found that the waist size is more appropriate way of predicting diabetes than Body Mass Index, according to newvision.co.ug.
BMI basically gives you a ratio of a person’s height to weight and it fails to distinguish body fat from muscle. In fact, the Body Mass Index ratio does not tell where the fat is located in a human body. Because of these reasons, this method of measurement has been under question many times by some professionals.
On the other hand, waist size basically measures the quantity of belly fat and how it is disseminated in a human body. The appearance of belly fat directly reflects the quantity of fat present around the vital organs of a human body. Due to the fact that waist gives an idea about the fat surrounding the vital organs it is found a better way to predict diabetes than BMI.
There is a common notion that the weight can be reduced by stopping excessive and unhealthy eating and the initiation of exercise. However, it’s not easy, especially when hormonal imbalances are involved and this is a common condition in diabetics.
