ObjectiveAnthropometric indices to obesity were evaluated as predictors of metabolic syndrome risk factors. Our purpose was to explore an optimal or more reliable anthropometric indicator and optimal cut-off points for obesity on metabolic syndrome in Chinese adults.Participants and methodsThe survey was conducted involving 2947 participants, aged 20 or above with cross-sectional study of population. The predictive validity and optimal cut-off values were analyzed by receiver operating… Expand
