Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The android or male pattern of fat distribution has been associated with a higher incidence of coronary artery disease. Studies have also related central abdominal obesity (indicated via increased waist-hip ratio) with increases in peripheral fasting insulin levels. It has also been associated with a change in pressor response in circulation. In response to stress in a subject with central obesity the cardiac output dependent pressor response is shifted towards a generalised rise in peripheral resistance with an associated decrease in cardiac output.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
