The prevalence of diabetes (A), high triglycerides (B), low HDL (C), and high blood pressure (D) versus trunk to leg volume ratio quartile for normal BMI (> = 18.5 kg/m2 and <25 kg/m2), overweight BMI (> = 25 kg/m2 and <30 kg/m2), obese BMI (> = 30 kg/m2), and total population in NHANES 1999–2004 are shown below. All data displayed had a significant trend (P-for-trend <0.001) in prevalence versus quartile of trunk to leg volume ratio. There was a significant (P<0.001) interaction (trunk to leg volume ratio quartile & BMI category) in the prevalence of diabetes and high blood pressure.
