Abstract : OBJECTIVE: To compare the sensitivities of BMI, waist circumference and waist hip ratio WHR in identifying subjects who should be screened for diabetes and-or for obesity-associated dyslipidaemia. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Central-western France. PARTICIPANTS: More than 3000 men and women, aged 40-64 years, from the French study: data from an epidemiological study on the insulin resistance syndrome D.E.S.I.R

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Sensitivity and specificity for screened diabetes fasting plasma glucose>or=7.0 mmol-l and screened dyslipidaemia triglycerides>or=2.3 mmol-l and-or HDL-cholesterol or=27-26 kg-m2 men-women or waist >or=96-83 cm or WHR>or=0.96-0.83. These values were chosen as thresholds. In men, BMI had a nonsignificantly higher sensitivity than waist or WHR for both diabetes and dyslipidaemia 77 vs 74 and 66% P
