A study in the Netherlands found that people with higher waist-to-hip ratios had higher blood pressure in their kidneys, which could cause kidney damage over time, even if they were not overweight. The risk of elevated kidney blood pressure was higher among those who both are overweight and have a higher waist-to-hip ratio. The study was published online in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
