The objective of this study is to assess the body mass index (BMI) of some students from the Jean Lorougnon Guede University in Daloa. The study was conducted on the Daloa campus and included 350 students of different gender and age. Anthropometric data such as weight (P), height (T), waist ratio (TT) and body mass index (BMI) were calculated. The boys in the study are mostly (171.34 ± 6.41 cm) taller than the girls (158.18 ± 5.47 cm), their body weight (64.01 ± 7.73 kg) is greater than that of girls (57.47 ± 9.42 kg). However, girls have a waist size (69.02 ± 7.49 cm) lower than that of boys (73.20 ± 5.23 cm). However, the BMI for girls (23.00 ± 3.85 kg / m²) is higher than that for boys (21.76 ± 1.92 kg / m²). The ratio (waist / waist) of girls (0.43 ± 0.04) is higher than that of boys (0.42 ± 0.02). This allowed us to show that the majority of students are normal weight, however some are overweight and others have abdominal obesity.Pages: 182-185 | 584 Views 38 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
