# ABSI body shape index for calculating disease risk (calculator)

ABSI (A Body Shape Index) is a body shape index. It takes into account several body parameters. It is more accurate than BMI and WHR. Based on its result, we can estimate the risk of cardiovascular disease.

## ABSI index: body shape index. Calculate your risk of obesity and disease

ABSI = A Body Shape Index.

It is a modern and more accurate calculation. It expresses the amount of risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

It is more accurate than the BMI and WHR index.

Health is at risk in people who are too thin and in people with obesity and large bellies.

ABSI calculation formula:

ABSI = waist circumference / (BMI⅔ x height½)

ABSI takes into account:

• Gender
• age
• height
• body weight
• waist circumference

The BMI does not distinguish between muscle mass and fat mass. The BMI result may be inaccurate. The WHR index is slightly more accurate in determining health risk measures. The ABSI is much more accurate.

The advantage of BMI is speed and the advantage of WHR/ABSI is accuracy. WHR/ABSI work with more data and are more complex.

#### ABSI health risk table from score

 Risk ABSI value Very low less than -0.868 low -0,868 to -0,272 average -0,272 to +0,229 high +0.229 to +0.798 very high more than +0,798

High ABSI = high proportion of abdominal fat compared to the rest of the body = increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes or cancer.

Estimates these risks based on body proportion or shape only. Does not take into account other factors such as other associated diseases.
