SAD is a strong predictor of coronary disease, with higher values indicating increased risk independent of BMI.

For persons of normal BMI, SAD should be under 25 centimetres (9.8 in). The amount this measure exceeds 30 centimetres (12 in) correlates to increased cardiovascular risk and insulin resistance. SAD measure of men in their 40s, greater than 25 cm, also predicts significantly higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease 30 years later. An article in Annals of Neurology links visceral fat to lower brain volume.

A related measurement is Supine Abdominal Height (SAH), the abdominal height as measured in the supine position. The SAH method is easier for self-monitoring, but gives slightly lower results due to gravity; the values are not directly comparable.[citation needed]
