Background: In recent years, waist and hip circumference measurements simultaneously used as anthropometric factors to determine the prevalence of overweight and obesity in adults, in addition to Body Mass Index. Some studies have confirmed the relationship between the above mentioned factors and the hematological parameters of cardiometabolic disorders. This study aimed to determine the association between anthropometric factors and hematological factors in 25-60 years old couples of Babol, Mazandaran.

Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted in spring 2014, on research population of 25-60 year old couples who were selected by random cluster. Data collected through a researcher-made questionnaire containing about demographic variables, underlying factors, dependent variables; its validity and reliability were confirmed. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS18 software.

Results: Men’s BMI had significant direct relationship with systolic and diastolic blood pressure, fasting blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides (p<0.05). Women’s BMI had a significant direct relations with systole and diastole blood pressure, fasting blood sugar and triglycerides (p<0.05). There was a significant direct relationship between men’s and women’s Waist/Hip Ratio (WHR) with systole and diastole blood pressure, fasting blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides (p<0.05). There was a significant direct relationship between men’s and women’s anthropometric indices (apart from the BMI) associated with serum biomarkers of cardiometabolic disorders (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The results showed that increased BMI and WHR in couples, increases the amount of cardiometabolic serum biomarkers and may directly and indirectly cause the risk of chronic diseases.
