  • Abstract: Objectives:To evaluate the relationship between abdominal obesity and microalbuminuria (MA) in normotensive, euglycemic Korean men.Design:A cross-sectional study at a health screening center.Subjects:A total of 1321 healthy, normotensive Korean men, aged 20–78 years, with a fasting plasma glucose level <100?mg/dl.Measurements:Height, weight, and waist; systolic blood pressure (SBP); diastolic blood pressures (DBP); urinary albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR); fasting glucose, insulin, lipids, C-reactive protein (CRP), and white blood cell count. Waist circumference (WC) was used to indicate abdominal obesity and a single measurement of ACR was used to estimate MA. We also calculated body mass index (BMI) based on weight and height.Results:Mean BMI, WC, and SBP were significantly higher in subjects with MA than in those without (24.84.1 vs 23.82.7?kg/m2, 869 vs 838?cm, and 1155 vs 1127?mmHg, respectively). Multiple logistic regression analyses showed that only WC and SBP were independent predictors of MA.Conclusion:WC and SBP were positively associated with MA in normotensive and euglycemic Korean men.International Journal of Obesity (2006) 30, 800–804. doi:10.1038/sj.ijo.0803210; published online 10 January 2006
