Waist to height ratio

Waist to height ratio calculatorWaist to height ratio is a simple measurement for assessment of lifestyle risk and overweight. Compared to just measuring waist circumference, waist to height ratio is equally fair for short and tall persons. This calculator is valid for children and adults.

Instructions:
1. Measure your waist circumference at a horizontal line one inch above your belly button.
2. Enter waist circumference and height by turning the dials.

Ratio
0.47
OK
Waist
inches
80
Height
ft' in''
170

Background:

Measuring waist to height ratio is gaining popularity in the scientific society as several studies have found that this is a more valid measurement than BMI. Just measuring waist circumference is inherently biased for people taller or shorter than average population.

This calculator uses the criteria for interpretitation suggested by Ashwell.

Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
