Summary
Brief summary
It has been proposed that a higher cut off for BMI (body mass index) is to be used in Maori
to define overweight and obesity. However, no one has assessed the prevalence of co-morbid
conditions associated with BMI. It is well known that Maori are at greater risk of diabetes
and cardiovascular disease compared to non-Maori and a delay in the identification of those
who are overweight and obese may be detrimental for Maori. We will assess BMI, other measures
of adiposity and prevalence of co-morbid conditions with a comparison with a similar matched
non-Maori population.
