A study in Obesity Research & Clinical Practice found that BMI and body fat percentage were better predictors of hypertension than waist size and waist-to-height ratio, which were good predictors of fasting glucose and HDL levels. BMI was the most consistent of the four body measurements at predicting high blood pressure, high fasting glucose, low HDL cholesterol and high LDL cholesterol.
