Things to Know

  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC), avoids using the word "obesity" for children and adolescents. Instead, they suggest two levels of overweight: "at risk" level, and the more severe level.

  • The American Obesity Association uses the 85th percentile of Body Mass Index (BMI) as a reference point for overweight and the 95th percentile for obesity.

  • Body Mass Index

  • Underweight, Overweight, or at Risk

  • (Weight in Pounds/Height in Inches/Height in Inches) x 703

  • Scale 85th% and up overweight

  • 95th% obese

  • Studies show low-weight patients with lowest BMIs

    • Had highest rates of death from heart disease and all other causes

  • Patients considered to be overweight, but not obese

    • Had lower risk for death from any cause than patients whose BMIs fell in the normal range.
