Anthropometric Indices: Good Predictor of Diabetes Mellitus Type-2
Sanjeev Dhakal | Uday N Singh | Subodh Kumar 
Abstract: Anthropometric indices especially, body mass index (BMI) and waist-hip ratio (WHR) are important in the development of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) type-2. BMI is the marker of overweight and obesity whereas WHR is the marker of fat content in upper and lower part of human body. Increased BMI and WHR leads to insulin insensitivity also known as insulin resistance which results into diabetes mellitus type-2 due to hyperglycemia. Most of the diabetcs have impaired BMI and WHR which have been found closely correlated with blood sugar levels in DM type-2 patients. They can predict the onset of DM type-2 in future in persons having abnormally increased BMI and WHR.
