Figure 4: (a) Masses (kg) of intraperitoneal fat (IPF) plotted against masses of quintiles of total abdominal fat for all men. IPF masses increased progressively with TAF, and the distribution of IPF for each category widened. Boxes show mean and one standard deviation; whiskers show 2 standard deviations. The chart gives median values for each quintile, the mean waist girth, and ratio of IPF to abdominal subcutaneous fat. The latter ratio changed a little across ratios except in the highest quintile. (b) Masses (kg) of intraperitoneal fat (IPF) plotted against masses of quintiles of total abdominal fat for all women. IPF masses increased progressively with TAF, and the distribution of IPF for each category widened. Boxes show mean and one standard deviation; whiskers show 2 standard deviations. The chart gives median values for each quintile, the mean waist girth, and ratio of IPF to abdominal subcutaneous fat. The latter ratio changed a little across ratios except in the highest quintile.
