Introduction: Use of anthropometric indices for predicting of cardio vascular diseases has attracted attention of researchers and relationship of many different indices with cardio vascular diseases has been well documented. The aim of this research was to introduce a novel anthropometric in dice that can be used more easily and accurately. Method: This research was a descriptive research .Subjects were 179 healthy and inactive men and women selected from individuals referring to cardio vascular department of Immam Reza hospital for normal heart check up under supervision of a cardio vascular surgeon. Anthropometric indices including (neck, waist, arm and crus circumferences ), arm size, crus size, ankle, knee, and elbow width were measured using a tape. Cardio vascular risk factors including :serum lipids, glucose and uric acid in serum was also determined. Results: Pearson coefficient correlation showed a direct significant association between NC and HDL, TG, TC/HDL, TG/HDL and VLDL in women. Results also showed that glucose increased with an increase in waist circumference. In men, with an increase in NC, the amount of LDL,VLDL, TG, TC/HDL, TC and TG/HDL increased, with increasing the amount of WE/B the amount of LDL also increased (P<0.05). Conclusion: The results of this research revealed that obesity indices such as WC, HDL, TG, TC/HDL, TG/HDL and VLDL can predict cardiovascular diseases properly and among them NC in compare to other indices a more accurate and convenient indice for predicting cardio vascular diseases.
