Abstract

There were great differences in diagnostic accuracy for the anthropometric measurements by ethnicity, and a relatively lower magnitude of differences by kind of anthropometric measurement. The present study suggests that BMI and WC were useful for predicting multiple metabolic disorders in non-diabetic Mongolians and Japanese, while the use of plasma triglyceride and HDL-cholesterol levels in combination with BMI and WC may enhance the ability of predicting metabolic parameters in the Japanese.
