Abstract

The authors estimated the generalized impact fraction (GIF) for heart failure (HF) related to obesity, representing the proportion of incident HF events that could be prevented from reductions in obesity and/or overweight. The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study is a biracial population-based cohort study of persons aged 45-64 years from 4 US communities with a median 14 years of follow-up (1987-2003) for incident, hospitalized, or fatal HF. Body mass index (BMI; weight (kg)/height (m)(2)) was measured at baseline (1987-1989) and categorized as normal weight (BMI
