A member asked:

If my waist is 36" and my hips are 52" does that consider me to have abdominal obesity?

Possibly: Probably best to check several measurements. 1) bmi = weight x 703/ height x height (using pounds & inches). Over 25 is overweight; over 30 is obese. 2) waist/height ratio - divide waist by height, below 0.5 is good. 3) waist/hip ratio - divide waist by hips; below 0.7 is good. Your measurements give a measurement of 0.692 which is close to the upper limit.
