  • Context and Objective: There are several anthropometric measures that are useful for diagnosis obesity and also are related to the development of different cardiovascular risk factors. The purpose of this study was to determine the predictive ability of various anthropometric parameters for the multiple risk factors aggregation (MRFA) in the adult population of the city of Maracaibo-Venezuela. Conclusion: Waist circumference provides greater predictive ability of MRFA compared to other… CONTINUE READING
