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 waist-hip ratio and body fat percentage, before and after adjustment for BMI or waist circumference, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of waist-hip ratio (left panel) and body fat percentage (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for BMI for waist-hip ratio or waist circumference for body fat percentage. Conventions as in Figure 1.

dyv012-F3: SBP vs waist-hip ratio and body fat percentage, before and after adjustment for BMI or waist circumference, in men and women. The means of SBP were calculated for each sex-specific decile of waist-hip ratio (left panel) and body fat percentage (right panel), with (a) standard adjustment for age, education and study area; and (b) additional adjustment for BMI for waist-hip ratio or waist circumference for body fat percentage. Conventions as in Figure 1.

Mentions: Figure 3 shows the corresponding SBP associations for WHR and body fat percentage. With basic adjustment, a 0.1 cm higher WHR was associated with about 5–6 mmHg higher SBP, but with additional adjustment for BMI, the association was 80–85% shallower in both sexes. However, for body fat percentage, each extra 10 percentage points was associated with ∼9 mmHg higher SBP in males and ∼7 mmHg higher SBP in women after basic adjustment; and after additional adjustment for WC, the association with this measure of general adiposity was just 15% (female) or 25% (male) shallower.Figure 3.
