Abstract

Although an excess of adipose tissue in the abdominal and truncal regions is associated with various metabolic alterations, relatively few cohort studies have examined its importance in the development of ischemic heart disease, and little information is available from black populations. The authors examined the relation of central obesity, as characterized by a thick subscapular skinfold relative to the triceps skinfold, to the incidence of ischemic heart disease among 9,822 persons in the Epidemiologic Follow-up Study of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1; baseline data were collected in 1971-1975 and follow-up was through 1987. We found that, independently of relativeweight, cigarette smoking, and other covariates, the hazard rate ratios for ischemic heart disease incidence contrasting the upper and lower quintiles of central obesity were 1.75 (95% confidence interval 1.3-2.3) among women and 1.85 (95% confidence interval 1.3-2.2) among men. Although central obesity was related similarly to disease among whiteand black men, the association among women differed between whites (rate ratio = 1.94) and blacks (rate ratio = 0.73); p = 0.002 for race xthe central obesity product term. Additional research is needed to clarify the relation of various anthropometric measurements to ischemic heart disease, particularly among blacks, but the assessment of fat distribution may help identify high-risk persons for whom weight loss might be most beneficial.
