A person's risk of cardiovascular disease is closely related to his or her BMI (body mass index), as shown above. Also, a strong correlation appears to exist between one's cardiovascular risk and his or her waist size. A waist size of greater or equal to 40 inches in men, or 35 inches in women, appears to be associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.


* Please note:  This BMI Calculator and Cardiovascular Risk Table apply only to persons over the age of 18.
