Low Levels of Fitness Associated With Larger Waist Size, Higher Inflammation

Working out has a huge range of health benefits. A recent study suggests that low levels of fitness may be associated with larger waist size and more inflammation, regardless of a person’s body mass index (BMI).


Participants in the study included 10,976 people who took part in The Danish National Health Examination Survey 2007-2008. All of the participants took a maximal oxygen intake test in order to determine physical fitness. The researchers also measured their waist circumference, weight, and height and took blood samples in order to measure levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation.


After examining the data, the researchers found that better fitness was associated with a smaller waist circumference and lower inflammation, regardless of the participants’ BMI.


Researchers from the University of Copenhagen led the study. It was published on January 17, 2018, in PLOS ONE.


Regular exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health. Previous clinical studies suggest that even moderate exercise may help with blood sugar control, body weight reduction, improved heart health, improved respiratory health and reduced risk of dying prematurely.
