From: Body shape index versus body mass index as correlates of health risk in young healthy sedentary men

Variable n = 114
Age (years) 21.7 ± 1.4
Weight (kg) 77.2 ± 12.2
Height (cm) 180.3 ± 6.7
BMI 23.7 ± 3.3 (25.4)*
Waist (cm) 80.7 ± 8.9 (2.0)*
ABSI 0.073 ± 0.003
Glucose (mmol/l) 4.8 ± 0.5 (6.1)^
Insulin (μIU/ml) 10.5 ± 6.4
