Your waist circumference is another way to assess weight-related health risks
To accurately measure your waist circumference, place the tape measure around your body, halfway between the lowest rib and the top of your hip bone and breathe out normally. Make sure to measure directly against your skin while ensuring that the tape measure is parallel to the ground and not compressing the skin in any way.
These guideline figures can vary though depending on your ethnic background.
Your risk is increased at 94 cm or more and is greatly increased at 102 cm or more
Your risk is increased at 80 cm or more and is greatly increased at 88 cm or more
