Abstract : Objectives: To determine the best anthropometric index in relation to cardiovascular disease risk factors among children and adolescents. Methods: This cross-sectional school-based study was conducted among a random sample of 3179 students, aged 6 to 18 years, in three large cities in Brazil.Results: The prevalence of overweight and obesity was 10percent and 5percent, respectively. In relation to the students in the lower quartile )Q1( of the distribution of subscapular skinfold, the students in the upper quartile )Q4( presented a 2.0 times higher risk )odds ratio( of having elevated total cholesterol levels. Overweight and obese students had a 3.3 times higher risk of having elevated systolic blood pressure, and a 1.9 times higher risk of elevated diastolic blood pressure than other students. The less active students presented a 1.58 times higher risk of having waist-to-height ratio )WHtR( above the upper tertile )Q3(. WHtR mean values was 0.46 )SE 0.00( presented the largest area under the curve )AUC( [0.613 )CI995percent:0.578-0.647([ for high total cholesterol levels, [0.546 )CI995percent: 0.515-0.578([ for low HDL-C levels, and [0.614 )CI95percent: 0.577-0.651([ for high LDL-C levels, while body mass index presented the largest AUC [0.669 )CI95percent: 0.64-0.699([ for increased diastolic blood pressure followed by the waist circumference for increased systolic blood pressure [0.761 )CI95percent: 0.735-0.787([. Conclusions: WHtR is considered as a simple and accurate anthropometric parameter that identifies youth with cardiovascular risk factors. In this study, WHtR above 0.44 was indicative of risk factors in children and adolescents. These findings can be applied in future preventive strategies against CVDs, and screening programs.
