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.

Higher SBP per standard deviation of each adiposity measure among men. The differences in SBP per 1 SD of each adiposity measure were calculated, with SBP regressed on level of each adiposity measure as a continuous variable. Adjustment for covariates is as above. Closed squares represent the mean differences in SBP with area inversely proportional to the variance of the SBP. Horizontal lines represent the corresponding 95% CIs.

dyv012-F4: Higher SBP per standard deviation of each adiposity measure among men. The differences in SBP per 1 SD of each adiposity measure were calculated, with SBP regressed on level of each adiposity measure as a continuous variable. Adjustment for covariates is as above. Closed squares represent the mean differences in SBP with area inversely proportional to the variance of the SBP. Horizontal lines represent the corresponding 95% CIs.

Mentions: Figures 4 and 5 show the associations of SBP with different measures of adiposity expressed as the difference in SBP per 1 sex-specific SD higher level of adiposity. In both sexes, the single strongest predictor after basic adjustment was height-adjusted weight, with each 1 SD greater weight at any given height associated with 6.7 mmHg higher SBP in men, and 5.7 mmHg higher SBP in women. After additional adjustment for WC and HC, the positive association became slightly weaker in men and slightly stronger in women, such that in both sexes 1 SD greater weight-for-height was associated with about 6 mmHg higher SBP.Figure 4.
