Consequences of change in waist circumference on cardio-metabolic risk-factors over 9-years. The D.E.S.I.R. Study: Cardio-metabolic effects of 9-year waist change

Abstract : Obesity and abdominal adiposity have been shown to be risk factors for cardiovascular disease and particularly for diabetes in prospective studies (1-8). In cross sectional studies both are related with risk factors for these diseases (9-12), but there are few publications on the effects of changes in abdominal adiposity (13). We characterise men and women who gained and lost abdominal adiposity over nine years and describe the incidence and the improvement in cardio-metabolic risk factors according to changes in waist circumference
