For years, BMI, or body mass index, was the go-to measurement to determine a person’s risk level for developing a variety of diseases, including type 2 diabetes.
However, a new measurement has shown to be a lot more accurate.
It turns out that waist-to-height ratio is the best predictor for whether or not a person will develop not only type two diabetes, but also a variety of other conditions and diseases including respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, and even some cancers.
Body mass index looks at overall weight versus height in a percentage. This has always left out the variable of muscle mass, which can really affect a person’s actual predisposition for developing a disease.
Waist to height ratio is much more accurate, according to the Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom.
A high ratio has been shown, after the results of more than 30 studies were released, to be a high indicator of problems, whereas having a low ratio of waist circumference compared to height was not.
