About Waist-to-Hip Measurements
The Waist to Hip ratio measures the circumference of your waist to that of your hips. This is an important indicator of how healthy your body shape is and is also a measurement of obesity and visceral fat, which in turn is a possible indicator of other more serious health conditions such as heart disease.
A ratio over 1.0 for men or over 0.85 for women suggests there’s more weight around your middle than is recommended, which may mean you need to consider a diet programme to decrease the size of your waist or hips. If you find you are over the average ratio then please book a free consultation with one of our doctors who will give you expert advice on how to shift the weight around your middle in order for you to live a healthier life style.
