Find out your waist to hip ratio, which is an important tool that helps you determine your overall health risk. People who tend to carry more weight around their waist are at greater risk of developing a chronic disease, such as heart disease or type two diabetes, compared to people who tend to carry more weight around their hips.
Using a flexible measuring tape, check your waist and hip measurements at home and then punch them into the calculator below to determine your overall health risk.
- Measure your hip circumference at its widest part.
- Measure your waist circumference at the belly button or just above it.
For a one-on-one consultation to discuss your results and ways to improve your overall health, contact Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
