The 2nd-4th digit ratio (2D:4D) and neck circumference
: implications for risk factors in coronary heart disease.
When analyzing the correlations of SBP and DBP with waist circumference

, knee height, skin fold thickness at triceps, arm span, arm length, and many others.
Conclusion: Neck circumference
strongly correlated with adiposity indices and had a definite cut-off point.
In conclusion, neck circumference
is an easy clinical examination tool not only for screening overweight and obesity in the pediatric population and predicting the risk of metabolic syndromes, but also to predict obstructive sleep apnea.
In this study we aimed to develop head circumference
growth references charts for age, height, and waist circumference
in Turkish children aged 5-18 years.
