BACKGROUND It is unclear whether increased left ventricular (LV) mass in overweight individuals is related to their adiposity or to greater fat-free mass (FFM). METHODS AND RESULTS We compared echocardiographic LV mass to FFM and adipose body mass by bioelectric impedance and to anthropometric measurements in 3107 American Indian participants in the Strong Heart Study. In men and women, the relations of LV mass and FFM (r=0.37 and 0.38, P<0.001) were closer (P<0.05 to <0.001) than they were… CONTINUE READING
