Understanding A Body Shape Index (ABSI)

ABSI stands out for its unique focus on central obesity, a condition characterized by excess fat accumulation around the abdomen. This type of fat distribution, often referred to as visceral fat, is associated with an increased risk of various health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. By targeting this specific aspect of body composition, ABSI provides a more comprehensive understanding of health risks.

ABSI Risk Categories:

  • Very Low Risk: ABSI ≤ −0.868
  • Low Risk: ABSI > −0.868 and ABSI-z ≤ −0.272
  • Average Risk: ABSI > −0.272 and ABSI-z ≤ +0.229
  • High Risk: ABSI > +0.229 and ABSI-z ≤ +0.798
  • Very High Risk: ABSI > +0.798
