Relationship of anthropometric indices to abdominal and total body fat in youth: sex and race differences.

Barreira TV, Broyles ST, Gupta AK, Katzmarzyk PT - Obesity (Silver Spring) (2014)

Bottom Line: Regression was used to examine sex and race effects in the relationship between independent (BMI, WC, and W/Ht) and dependent (FM, SAT and VAT) variables.The association of BMI with FM and SAT was independent of sex and race, while the relationships of WC and W/Ht with FM and SAT were influenced by both sex and race.In contrast, the association between BMI and VAT was influenced by sex and race, while the relationships of WC and W/Ht with VAT were not.

Figure 2: Relationships between waist circumference (WC) and adiposity in African American (AA) and white children and adolescents.Figure 2A. Relationships between WC and fat mass.Figure 2B. Relationships between WC and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT).Figure 2C. Relationships between WC and visceral adipose tissue (VAT).

Mentions: In the FM model, in addition to WC, age, sex, and race had significant main effects and the interactions between WC x race, sex x race, and WC x sex x race were also significant (all p < 0.01). Although participants with low WC had similar levels of FM, at a higher WC, girls had more FM than boys (Figure 2A). In the SAT model, in addition to WC, age, and race had significant main effects, and the interactions between WC x race, sex x race, and WC x sex x race were also significant (p < 0.01). Although sex was not related to SAT after adjusting for WC, due to the interaction effects, for a given WC, girls had more SAT than boys, and the difference increased at higher levels of WC (Figure 2B). There was a significant linear relationship between WC and VAT (p = 0.0005), and neither age, sex nor race were related to VAT after adjusting for WC (Figure 2C).
