Ozhan Bayram , Ersoy Betul , Kiremitci Seniha

Background: We aimed to assess whether or not anthropometric indices such as weight circumference (WC), waist/hip ratio (WHR), waist-height ratio (WHtR), and weight for height (W/H) are predictors for metabolic syndrome (MetS) among obese children and adolescents. We aimed to describe effects of gender and pubertal status on these anthropometric indices.Method: A total of 291 obese children and adolescents (160 girls and 131 boys, age range: 6–16 ye...
