Objective To investigate the relationship between waist-to-height ratio(WHt R) and risk factors for coronary heart disease for providing evidence and important information for the prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease,Methods A total of 650 patients who were preliminarily diagnosed as coronary heart disease and underwent coronary angiography were enrolled and chosen as study subjects in the present study.Body surveying index containing the patients' waist circumference,height and weight was measured,and WHt R and Body Mass Index(BMI) were computed,At the same time,all patients' preprandial blood was examined for related blood biochemistry index including glucose(GLU),serum lipid and uric acid(UA),and their related clinical characteristic was collected within two days after admission,The relationship between WHt R and risk factors for coronary heart disease was then analyzed,Results There were significant differences in total cholesterol(TC),low density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL-C),high density lipoprotein cholesterol(HDL-C),GLU and UA between patients with WHt R ≤0.5 and those with WHt R 0.5(P 0.01),WHt R had significantly stronger correlation with related blood biochemistry index than BMI,Whether the patients suffering from coronary heart disease or not was taken as dependent variable and the variables with P0.05 screened by single factor analysis were taken as independent variable,Binary Logistic stepwise regression analysis was conducted,Conclusion Age,WHt R,diabetes history,hypertension history,LDL-C and UA were positively correlated with coronary heart disease,while HDL-C was negatively correlated with coronary heart disease,WHt R is significantly related to risk factors for coronary heart disease,WHt R could be served as an important index of predicting and evaluating coronary heart disease risks.
