    Cardiovascular risks doubled with an apple morphology
    Take into account waist circumference as well as BMI to assess risks
    The calculation of body mass index (BMI) , now obsolete for assessing cardiovascular risks ? An American study published June 30, 2019 in the European Heart Journal reveals that women who have an apple-shaped morphology have higher risks of cardiovascular disease compared to those with a pear-shaped body, despite the fact that their BMI is normal.

    Cardiovascular risks doubled with an apple morphology
    It is not the weight that would matter, but rather the location of fat. To achieve this, the researchers or doctors followed 2,683 postmenopausal women for nearly 18 years, with a normal BMI (18.5) and no history of cardiovascular disease at the start of the study. During follow-up, however, 291 cases of cardiovascular events were recorded. Scientists were able to see that participants who had the most fat in the abdomen (apple morphology) saw their risk of heart problems and stroke (stroke) double compared to those who stocked the least amount of blood. fat at this place.

    Another surprising observation was that those with excess fat in the legs (pear morphology) had a significantly lower cardiovascular risk compared to those who had the least fat in this area, regardless of the presence of fat in their legs. belly level!

    Take into account waist circumference as well as BMI to assess risks
    For Dr. Qibin Qi, co-author of the study, this unique work suggests that " postmenopausal women, even if they have normal weight, may have a cardiovascular risk that varies depending on how the fat is distributed in their body (around their waist or their legs) ".

    If further research is needed to determine if these results can be translated into the general population, the menopause period is known to cause changes in the shape of the woman's body, according to him, younger women, men but also health professionals would be well advised to take this indicator into account in order to control cardiovascular risks, " including in people who have a healthy weight and a normal BMI ", the waist circumference being usually measured only among patients with a high BMI.

    Although the breakdown of fat has a genetic component, Dr. Qi explains that it can be controlled with the practice of physical activity and the adoption of a healthy diet.
