LONGEVITY AND BMI

BMI of 23 to 23.9 healthiest for those over 65, lowest risk of dying over 12 years

In people over 65-years-old, a body mass index (BMI) of 23 to 23.9 was associated with the lowest risk of dying over the next 12 years according to a review of 32 studies.

Being leaner than this was associated with a greater risk of dying.

  • Those with a BMI of 20 to 20.9 were 19% more likely to die over the next 12 years.
  • Those with a BMI of 21 to 21.9 were 12% more likely to die over the next 12 years.
  • Those with a BMI of 33 to 33.9 were 8% more likely to die over the next 12 years.

Not until a person weighed considerably more than this, was it associated with a greater risk of dying.

  • Those with a BMI of 33 to 33.9 were 8% more likely to die over the next 12 years.

“For older populations, being overweight was not found to be associated with an increased risk of mortality; however, there was an increased risk for those at the lower end of the recommended BMI range for adults,” the authors concluded.
