12.7 Obesity

One of the metabol­ic syn­drome mea­sures is waist size. If it is greater than 40″, then add one point.

The waist size of the pants that I wear are ei­ther 33″ or 34″. How­ev­er, cloth­ing sizes don’t ac­cu­rate­ly re­flect re­al­i­ty. When Mary Ann mea­sures my waist with a tape mea­sure, the num­ber is 36″. This is un­der 40″, so count 0 metabol­ic syn­drome points for waist size.
