Objective: to analyze the correlation and concordance between Waist Circumference and Waist-Height Ratio with Body Mass Index according to ATP-III and IDF for Sudamerica and Europe criteria in adults. Methods: an observational, analytical and cross-sectional study was carried out in 339 patients. The variables were gender, age, weight, height, body mass index, waist circumference, waist-height ratio and diagnosis under inclusion and exclusion criteria stablished by Seguro Social Universitario of the Universidad Mayor of San Simón. It was calculated the Chi-squared test, Pearson´s correlation, Cronbach´s alpha reliability and Kappa concordance coefficients. Results: the 66,4% of the sample is female. There is more correlation (0.65) and concordance (0.32) between Waist Circumference and Waist-Height Ratio with Body Mass Index in males. Conclusion: there is a better correlation and reliability between clinical risk indicators and cut points to, Waist Circumference and Waist-Height Ratio according to ATP-III criteria, with Body Mass Index in the evaluated population.
