Guide to Measuring Adult Obesity

There is no definitive way of assessing obesity. However, many doctors use a height-weight system known as the Body Mass Index (BMI) as a rough guide to assessing obesity, including morbid or malignant obesity, among the general adult population.

Obesity Chart
Use the simplified chart (see below) of the BMI obesity level for men and women between the height of 4 feet 10 inches (1.47m) and 6 feet (1.83m).

How to Use the Obesity Chart
1. Find your height in the Height column
2. Look in the Obesity Point column to see when you become obese


How to See When You Are Obese
If you are 5 ft 4 inches tall, you start to suffer from obesity when you reach
about 175 pounds

Health Risks of Obesity

Once you suffer from obesity you run an increased risk of developing a number of conditions. Here are some examples: 

  • High blood pressure and stoke are twice as common in obese people.

  • Evidence is strong that obesity increases the risk of breast cancer (after menopause), womb cancer and kidney cancer.

  • Obesity may also increase the risk of colon cancer.

  • Gall bladder disease is three times as likely to occur in middle-aged obese women.

  • Diabetes is four times more common in middle-aged obese people than in middle-aged people of normal weight.

  • Coronary heart disease is twice as common in obese men under 45.
