LIRA SANTOS, Andréia et al. Accuracy parameters as indicators of anthropometric adiposity visceral scheduled for two-dimensional equation. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.2046-2053. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2015.32.5.9685.

Introduction: anthropometric indicators are easy to apply and can help identify the accumulation of visceral fat, which favors the occurrence of cardiovascular events, increasing morbidity and mortality from chronic degenerative diseases. Objective: to evaluate the accuracy of anthropometric indicators for the location of abdominal fat in determining visceral adiposity. Subjects/Methods: cross-sectional study conducted among patients attending outpatient, of both sexes, aged over 20 years. Evaluated: Waist Circumference (WC), Waist-Hip Ratio (WHR), waist-to- stature ratio (CER), conicity index (CI); Sagittal Abdominal Diameter (DAS); Coronal Diameter (DC); Mass Index (BMI), percentage of body fat (% BF); Visceral Adiposity (AV/AS) predicted by the formula , fasting glucose , total cholesterol (TC), Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL), Very Low Density lipoprotein (VLDL) and Triglycerides (TG). Results: 129 patients were included, mean age 51, 06 + 14.02 years and a higher prevalence of adults (72,9%) and female (75,2%). CC 102,9 (+ 10,82 ), CI 2,08 (+ 0,13), and the AV/AS 1,03 (+ 0,16), showed high values with statistical significance among men, p<0.001 . The same occurred with the CT (212,41 + 46,4), HDL (50,15 + 13,24) and LDL (135,62 + 40,16) among women, p<0.05. The CC, RCE, DAS and DC showed an inverse and significant correlation with the AV/AS: r = -0,364; -0,457; -0,403; -0,296; -0,475; respectively, p<0.001. However, best explained the variance in visceral obesity were the DC (R2 = 0.77), CQ (R2 = 0.64) and CERs (R2 = 0.59). Discusión/Conclusion: the DC and CERs were the best predictors anthropometric measures of visceral obesity.
