21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: to determine if adiposity by body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), waist circumference (WC), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) uniformly predicted diet behavior adherence, functional status, knowledge (adiposity & diet/exercise expectations), and survival. Methods: 302 obese adults (BMI ?30 kg/m2) with HF treated at a large Midwest tertiary-care center completed data on characteristics and valid, reliable surveys on medical history, diet, functional status and knowledge. 3-group comparisons for each adiposity measure compared to BMI were studied using regression models. Estimates of survival were calculated by Kaplan-Meier estimates and Cox proportional hazard models. Results: Patient factors associated with the 4 adiposity measures varied. In all but WHR, female gender and non-white race were associated with higher adiposity (all P less than or equal to 0.02) and in all but BMI, history of diabetics requiring medications was associated with higher adiposity (all P<0.01). Reducing fat was associated with higher BMI (P=0.02) and resisting relapse, reducing calories, reducing fat, behavioral skills and overall eating behaviors were associated with higher WC (all P less than or equal to 0.05). Worse functional status was associated with higher adiposity in all but WHR (all P les than or equal to 0.01). Knowledge score was low (10.2 +/- 3.2; 51% correct responses) and was not associated with any adiposity measure. After multivariable regression, high BMI predicted worsening functional status and moderate WC predicted adherence to reducing fat behaviors (P=0.04) and trended toward adherence to overall eating behaviors (P=0.08). Survival did not differ by diet behaviors, functional status, knowledge, BMI, WHR or WC, but over 9 months was worse in patients with higher WHtR (P=0.025). Conclusion: In obese HF patients, when adiposity was assessed as low, moderate or high, patient factors, morbidity outcomes and mortality differed by each adiposity measure studied. Before developing intervention programs to improve outcomes, data interpretation requires caution and future research is needed.
