Bottom Line: We examined cross-sectional data on 500 000 adults recruited from 10 diverse localities across China during 2004-08.The main analyses excluded those reported taking any antihypertensive medication, and were adjusted for age, region and education.The overall mean [standard deviation (SD)] BMI was 23.6 (3.3) kg/m(2) and mean WC was 80.0 (9.5) cm.

SBP vs height-adjusted weight and BMI, before and after adjustment for waist circumference, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of height-adjusted weight (left panel) and BMI (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for waist circumference (as a continuous variable). Closed squares represent the means of SBP with area inversely proportional to the variance of the mean SBP, and horizontal lines represent the corresponding 95% CIs.

dyv012-F1: SBP vs height-adjusted weight and BMI, before and after adjustment for waist circumference, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of height-adjusted weight (left panel) and BMI (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for waist circumference (as a continuous variable). Closed squares represent the means of SBP with area inversely proportional to the variance of the mean SBP, and horizontal lines represent the corresponding 95% CIs.

Mentions: Figure 1 shows the sex-specific associations of SBP with height-adjusted weight, and BMI. After basic adjustment (solid lines), each extra 10 kg of body weight at each given height was associated with ∼6 mmHg higher SBP, and each 10 kg/m2 higher BMI was associated with 17 mmHg higher SBP in men and 14–15 mmHg higher SBP in women. After additional adjustment (dashed lines) for WC, the strengths of these associations were attenuated by 13–14% in men and by 8% in women.
