Abstract

To examine the relationship between body fat distribution and hemodynamic stress responses, cardiovascular responses to a speech task and a forehead cold presser task were evaluated with 24 premenopausal women classified a priori as either centrally or peripherally obese. Results showed that women with central adiposity exhibited greater stress-related increases in diastolic blood pressure and total peripheral resistance, whereas women with peripheral adiposity exhibited greater stress-related increases in cardiac output. Depression, self-consciousness, hostility, and mood scores did not explain significant variance in the stress response differences between regional adiposity groups. The findings suggest that central adiposity may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease in women at least in part by enhancingvascular responses to stress.
