Determination of Correlation of Body Mass Index and Waist Hip Ratio with Cardiovascular Parameters in Sedentary Males
Background: Obesity causes an increase in adipose tissue accumulation, which is linked to increased sympathetic activity, a main possible mechanism that contributes to an increased risk of cardiovascular problems. Obesity is linked to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility, osteoarthritis, and colo-rectal malignancies. Visceral fat is more atherogenic than other types of fat.
100 sedentary healthy male individuals were randomly picked from the general community of Davangere. Weight, height, waist, and hip circumferences were all measured anthropometrically. Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist Hip Ratio (WHR) were determined using these. A correlation was found between BMI and WHR and cardiovascular markers. Body mass index, waist hip ratio, and cardiovascular parameters in sedentar subjects were determined. Body mass index, waist hip ratio, and cardiovascular parameters in inactive subjects were correlated. Results: In sedentary patients, there was a statistically significant rise in BMI, waist hip ratio, blood pressure, and pulse rate, as well as a positive connection between BMI, waist hip ratio, blood pressure, and pulse rate. Conclusion: Obesity and sedentary lifestyles are linked to an increase in BMI, waist hip ratio, blood pressure, and pulse rate. Body Mass Index, Waist Hip Ratio, Pulse Rate, and Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure all have a positive association.
