Abdominal Adiposity Score (Abdominal Fat)

It is very well established that having lower amounts of abdominal fat (mainly the fat around your organs, called “visceral fat”) is associated with improved health outcomes:

  • Metabolic health (insulin resistance)
  • Insulin resistance
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Brain health
  • Gut health
  • Immune health
  • Cancer outcomes (improved cancer control rates and mortality)

While there are many ways to assess your abdominal fat, one of the most important and simplest is with a measurement called the “waist-to-height ratio.”
