Associations of Body Shape Index and Body Mass Index with Metabolic Syndrome Risk Factors in Korean Adolescents: The Fifth Korea National Health and Nutrition Survey
ABSTRACT
This study was performed to investigate associations of body mass index(BMI, weight(kg)/height(m)2) and a body shape index(ABSI, waist circumference(m)/(BMI2/3×height(m)1/2)) with metabolic syndrome risk factors(waist circumference(WC), blood pressure(BP), fasting glucose(FGC), high density lipoprotein cholesterol(HDL-C), and triglycerides(TG)) in 12~14 and 15~18 age groups using 1,386 adolescents(746 males and 640 females) data of The Fifth Korean National Health and Nutrition Survey in 2010 and 2011. In the results, while levels of WC(p<.001) and blood pressure(p<.001) in males were significantly increased with age, levels of WC(p<.001) and TG(p<.01) in females were significantly increased. In addition, levels of BMI in males(p<.001) and females(p<.01) were significantly increased with age, whereas the levels of ABSI in males and females indicated no significant change with age. We performed the Pearson correlation to examine the relationship between BMI or ABSI and metabolic syndrome risks. In males, while BMI had significant correlations with all metabolic risk factors in 12~14 and 15~18 age groups, ABSI had significant correlations with WC and TG in 12~14 age group and with WC in 15~18 age group. On the other hand, in females, while BMI had significant correlations with WC, HDL-C, and TG in 12~14 age group and with WC, FGC, HDL-C, and TG in 15~18 age group, ABSI had no significant correlations with metabolic risk factors except WC in all female groups. These results showed that metabolic syndrome risk factors were more affected by BMI than ABSI in Korean adolescents.
Key words: body weight, body mass index, a body shape index, metabolic syndrome, adolescents
