Relation between the New Anthropometric Obesity Parameters and Inflammatory Markers in Healthy Adult Men

Description

Background: The aim of this study is to estimate the relationship between the new anthropometric parameters [waist circumference to height ratio (WHtR), body adiposity index (BAI) and visceral adiposity index (VAI)] and some inflammatory markers (hsCRP, fibrinogen and TNF-alpha). Methods: Randomly selected 182 healthy adult men included to this study. Height, body weight (BW), waist circumference (WC) and hip circumference (HC) were measured and body mass index (BMI), waist circumferences to hip circumferences ratio (WHR), WHtR, BAI and VAI were calculated (VAI score was calculated after biochemical analysis). Subjects were grouped as Group 1 and Group 2 according to VAI, and normals, overweights and obeses according to BMI. Plasma fibrinogen, serum TNF-alpha and serum hsCRP levels were measured. Results: All APs and hsCRP were increased in GROUP 2 significantly. TNF-alpha and fibrinogen levels were similar. Age, serum hsCRP and plasma fibrinogen were higher in overweights compared to normals. BMI and WHtR were positively correlated to serum hsCRP and plasma fibrinogen. Also VAI and BAI correlated with hsCRP. Conclusion: Classical obesity parameters and new antropometric measures were related to some systemic inflammatory markers in our study. Both general and abdominal obesity have a pretendency toward having high inflammatory markers. New antropometric measures may also reflect these disturbances in overweight adult men.
