Abstract

Objectives: To investigate the association of different measures of central (abdominal) and overall adiposity with autonomic nervous system (ANS) function, indexed by heart rate variability (HRV), in apparently healthy human adults. Design and Measurements: Cross-sectional data of 8,538 participants (20% female, age: 41 ± 11 years, body mass index (BMI): 24 ± 4 kg/m2, waist circumference (WC): 91 ± 12 cm, waist-to-height ratio (WHtR): 0.45 ± 0.08) were available for analysis. Results: All measures of adiposity were inversely correlated with vagally-mediated HRV indexed by RMSSD (all p
