Do components of adult height predict body composition and cardiometabolic risk in a young adult South Asian Indian population?

We investigated whether the relationship between components of height and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk may be explained by body composition. We also examined relationships between parental heights and offspring CVD risk.
