BMI Classification for Asian Population

According to WHO, the Asian population tends to have lower BMI levels than the non – Asian population when an average is taken out. The latest report by WHO concludes that the Asian men tend to have a higher percentage of body fat than the male population based in the West.

The Asians also have higher tendencies to develop type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. WHO has given the following BMI cut – offs to be classified under different classes of weight:

ClassWeight Ranges
Severe Underweight less than 16 Kg/m2
Moderate Underweight 16.0 to 16.9 Kg/m2
Mild Underweight 17.0 to 18.49 Kg/m2
Normal 18.5 to 24.9 Kg/m2
Overweight Greater than or equal to 25
Pre – obese 25 to 29.9 Kg/m2
Obesity Greater than or equal to 30 Kg/m2
Obese Class I 30.0 to 39.9 Kg/m2
Obese Class II 35 to 39.9 Kg/m2
Obese Class III Greater than or equal to 40 Kg/m2

The World Health Organization (WHO) also suggested that in situations where BMI is found to be less than 21, those populations shall be considered as undernourished when compared with the populations which have good nutritional levels. Therefore, Asian countries like India are required to have some guidance to provide health improvement policies to their people. Such populations should be given proper knowledge about the risk of having low to high BMI levels and other necessary steps should be taken in order to improve the quality of life of the people.
