# Calculate WHR

Here you can calculate your WHR (Waist to hip ratio). The WHR is a measure for the fat distribution in the body. Enter your waist girth (measured between pelvis upper edge and the lowest rib) and your hip measurement (measured on the broadest point) in centimeters and click Calculate.

 Waist girth (cm): Hip measurement (cm): WHR:

 under 0.72 Risk base value 1 concerning coronary heart deseases between 0.72 and 0.75 1.59-fold bad risk for coronary heart deseases between 0.76 and 0.79 2.32-fold bad risk for coronary heart deseases between 0.80 and 0.83 2.85-fold bad risk for coronary heart deseases between 0.84 and 0.87 3.57-fold bad risk for coronary heart deseases over 0.88 5.04-fold bad risk for coronary heart deseases

Formula for calculate the waist to hip ratio: Waist girth / Hip measurement

Explanations:
Coronary heart disease is a disease of the heart vessels. These include common diseases such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. These diseases have the potential to shorten life and should be avoided as far as possible. There is an increased health risk for women with a WHR of 0.85 and for men with a WHR of 1.0 and above. The waist circumference can be used to estimate visceral fat, the inner abdominal fat, which is considered particularly harmful and promotes these diseases. Apart from that, a low WHR is often perceived as particularly attractive, especially in women, with a value of 0.7 or slightly less.

The waist to hip ratio is a measure for assessing the health risks of people who are overweight. Other measures are body mass index (BMI) and body shape index (ABSI). These three values ​​are all valid and say different things; it is most meaningful if all three are determined.
