Association of long-term change in waist circumference with insulin resistance.

Abstract

Recent studies have shown that fat accumulation is associated with insulin resistance; however, the risks associated with long-term changes and fluctuations in central fatness are less clear. This study examined the longitudinal relationship between waist circumference (WC) and insulin resistance using three dimensions of WC: baseline WC, slope of linear… (More)
