Record #172264:

Body mass index may overestimate the prevalence of overweight and obesity among the Inuit / Guylaine Charbonneau-Roberts, Helga Saudny-Unterberger, Harriet V. Kuhnlein, Grace M. Egeland.

Title: Body mass index may overestimate the prevalence of overweight and obesity among the Inuit / Guylaine Charbonneau-Roberts, Helga Saudny-Unterberger, Harriet V. Kuhnlein, Grace M. Egeland.
Author(s): Charbonneau-Roberts, Guylaine.
Saudny-Unterberger, Helga.
Kuhnlein, Harriet V.
Egeland, Grace M.
Date: 2005.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2005.), Vol. 64(2) (2005)
Abstract: Data confirm Inuit have shorter legs and relatively higher sitting heights than other populations. Use of sitting-height to standing-height ratio in health research could help formulate Inuit-specific BMI screening guidelines. Use of standing height in BMI calculation overestimates overweight and obesity.
