Abstract: The aim is to determine the appropriate cutoff values of waist circumference (WC) for an increased risk of the metabolic syndrome in the Korean elderly population. We analyzed the WC cutoff values of four groups divided according to sex and age with a total of 2,224 elderly participants aged 65 years old and above from the Fourth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey using the receiver operating characteristic curve and multiple logistic regression. The WC cutoff values associated with an inc… Show more

“…Alternatively, other studies of BMI show increased rates of morbidity among the overweight and obese (Flegal et al, 2013). Evidence also suggests that higher centralized obesity leads to greater risks of metabolic syndrome, particularly among older women (So & Yoo, 2015). These previous studies included older adults of different age ranges (50+ to 65+).…”

“…26 Central obesity was defined as WC ≥ 90 cm for men. 27 Diabetes mellitus was diagnosed when the patients had a history of diabetes mellitus or had received treatment for this condition. Hypertension was diagnosed when the individuals currently used antihypertensive medications or met the 2020 definition of hypertension of the International Society of Hypertension (systolic blood pressure ≥ 140 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥ 90 mmHg at two different times).…”

“…However, as for the impact of obesity, a meta-analysis study demonstrates that overweight elderly people are not at increased risk with regard to health and mortality (de Hollander et al, 2012). Therefore, a few recent studies have suggested that the criteria for the obesity of older adults should be set at a higher threshold than those of younger adults and should be similar between sexes regardless of race (Heim et al, 2011; So & Yoo, 2012).…”
