ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which determined the prevalence of, and sex differences in, abdominal obesity and insulin resistance, key features of metabolic syndrome. The study assessed whether risk of these factors is associated with mild obesity in Japanese elementary school children. Regarding waist circumference, significant differences were presented between boys and girls. The approach used in this study has some limitations.
