Abstract

Objectives: Obesity is a health problem in the majority of the developed countries and is emerging as a serious problem in the developing countries. In this study, we examined 200 adults to determine the prevalence of obesity and abdominal obesity.

Material and Methods: In this hospital based study, 200 adults patients (both males and females), > 20 years of age, were randomly selected and examined for body mass index (BMI) and waist to hip ratio (WHR).
