What is bmi l.jpg

What is BMI?

  • A number that compares a child’s weight to her height

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) =

    Weight (kg) / Height (m)²

  • BMI is an effective SCREENING tool; alone it is nota diagnostic tool


Bmi is not the same for adults and children l.jpg

BMI is Not the Same for Adults and Children

  • Adult BMI is evaluated by use of cut-off numbers; for example BMI >30 is indicative of adult obesity

  • There are no BMI cut-off numbers for children. The BMI number must be plotted on the BMI-for-age growth chart

  • The BMI for children is useful only when it is plotted on the “BMI-for-age Growth Chart”

Importance of using bmi for age l.jpg

Importance of Using BMI-for-age

  • Tracking tool for body size starting at age 2 years through adulthood

  • Only indicator that examines weight, stature AND age for a child on a single growth chart

  • Correlates with clinical risk factors for chronic disease including hyperlipidemia, elevated insulin, and high blood pressure

Slide34 l.jpg

What is “Adiposity” Rebound (AR)?

  • A rebound or increase in BMI that occurs after it reaches its lowest point, usually between ages 4 to 6.

  • Normal pattern of growth

  • An early "adiposity" rebound, occurring before ages 4 to 6, is associated with obesity in adulthood.

Steps to plot bmi for age l.jpg

Steps to Plot BMI-for-age

  • Obtain accurate weight and height measurements

  • Select the appropriate growth chart

  • Record the data

  • Calculate BMI

  • Plot measurements

  • Interpret plotted measurements

  • Obtain Accurate Weight and Height Measurements

  • Accurate Measurements are Critical

5 year old boy

Weight: 43.5 lb

Height: 43 in

BMI= 16.5

BMI-for-age = 75-84th %tile

Inaccurate height measurement: 42.5 in

BMI=17

BMI-for-age = 85-94th %tile


2 select the appropriate growth chart l.jpg

2. Select the Appropriate Growth Chart

  • For ages birth to 36 months old:

    • “Length-for-age,” and “Weight-for-age”

    • “Weight-for-length,” and “Head Circumference-for-age”

  • For ages 2 to 20 years:

    • “Weight-for-age,” and “Stature-for-age”

    • Body Mass Index “BMI-for-age”

4 calculate bmi l.jpg

4. Calculate BMI

English:

Wt (lbs.) ÷Ht (in.) ÷ Ht (in.) x 703

Metric:

Wt (kg.) ÷Ht (cm.) ÷ Ht (cm.) x 10,000

6 interpret the bmi for age chart l.jpg

6. Interpret the BMI-for-age Chart

  • Need a series of BMI plots to determine the growth trend

  • If growth deviates from expected growth pattern, further assessment may be needed

Weight= 41 lbs (18.6 kg)

Height= 39.7 in (100.8 cm)

Find BMI, plot, & interpret growth trend

Answers: Pete’s “BMI-for-age”

BMI=18.3

  • Interpretation:

  • BMI-for-age = >95th percentile

  • Overweight

  • Of 100 boys the same age, more than 95 have a lower BMI-for-age
