    Overweight and obesity can be determined by calculating their waist-to-height ratio according to a study from China. Overweight

    Overweight: Waist-to-height ratio greater than 0.445

    Children with a waist-to-height ratio of more than 0.445 are more than likely overweight.

     

    Obesity

    Obesity: Waist-to-height ratio greater than 0.475 for girls, 0.485 for boys

    For obesity, the cutoff is 0.475 for girls, and 0.485 for boys.

     

    Conclusion

    Conclusion: Waist-to-height ratio is a simple and accurate index for determining obesity
