A recent study in green journal examined the association of body fat distribution with risk of endometriosis in an effort to determine whether a specific presence of fat in some parts of the body is related to the disease. The researchers studied some affected women with endometriosis with special focus on the presence of fat in the hip, waist and thigh.
The lead researcher gathered ’88 laparoscopically confirmed cases of endometriosis and ’88 age-matched friend controls’. ‘The data were collected by standardized personal interview, and body measurements were taken in a standardized fashion’ by one of the researchers . The woman were studied using the ‘risk of endometriosis associated with body fat distribution, as expressed by waist-to-hip and waist-to-thigh ratios’ Logistic regression was used to assess the women, says the lead researcher.
