Important Healthy Checkup # 13: Waist circumference measurement
This test will help to diagnose the fat accumulation and abdominal obesity in your body. This test will help to know your risk for developing various chronic diseases. Dr. Sunesara says - for men, if your waist measures more than 94 cm and for women, if your waist measures more than 80 cm then you are at an increased risk. Check your weight and waist circumference at least twice in six months.
