# Waist to Height Ratio Calculator

Exercise Daily – The waist to height ratio calculator is a predictor of your risk for obesity, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and hypertension, among other conditions.

It is calculated by dividing waist circumference by height. It is recommended that men and women maintain a waist circumference that is no more than half their height.

In no way should the waist to height ratio be confused with the ‘Waist to Hip Ratio,’ which is used to determine the distribution of body fat. Both, on the other hand, can be used to screen for potential health concerns.

Due to the fact that it measures the amount of fat collected between internal organs and the torso, known as visceral fat, waist circumference has a direct relationship with the risk of developing heart disease.

The presence of visceral fat is directly associated with stroke and heart disease. The greater the circumference of the waist, the greater the risk of morbidity and death from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and hypertension, among other diseases.

Even though the criteria for waist circumference, height, and waist-to-height ratio may differ between races and ethnicities, the waist-to-height ratio indication is equally relevant for children and adults, regardless of age.
