Abstract: Obesity is a risk factor for both chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular disease. The association of simple indices of obesity with CKD remains poorly understood. Evidence suggests that measures of central obesity such as waist circumference (WC) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) are more accurate predictors of morbidity and cardiovascular risk than body mass index (BMI). This study aimed to investigate the association of BMI, WC and WHR with CKD risk in a population screened for type 2 diabetes.
