To compare the predictive value of different measures of obesity for metabolic syndrome (MetS) in adult Yi and Han nationality population.


A total of 3 492 urban and rural residents in Chengdu and Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture participated in this study. Demographic and laboratory data were collected. Spearman correlation analysis was used to investigate the relationship between different obesity measurement indexes and MetS. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to compare the predictive value between different obesity measurement indexes.


Spearman correlation analysis showed that MetS was related to body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), lipid accumulation index (LAP) and visceral adiposity index (VAI). The ROC curve showed that the LAP had the highest predictive value for MetS in both Yi and Han male adults, area under the curves (AUCs) >0.90; whereas WHR had the lowest predictive value. WHtR had high predictive value for MetS in both Yi and Han female adults (AUCs >0.88), VAI had the worst predictive value.


Among different measures of obesity, LAP may have the optimal predictive value for MetS in male adults as do WHtR in female adults either in Yi or Han nationality. These findings should be confirmed through the measure of visceral fat volume and prospective study.
