Prevalence and Predictors of Overweigh and Obesity in Adolescents

English Abstract

Background & Aims of the Study: Adolescent overweight and obesity are worldwide public health problems which play important roles in well-being. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of overweight and obesity among adolescents aged 14‐19 years old. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and predictors of adolescent overweight and obesity among Iranian adolescents. Materials & Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted among 430 adolescents aged 14-19 years old from urban schools of Ardabil, Iran in 2014. The collected data were analyzed by binary logistic regression analysis using SPSS-18;A P-value of <0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: A total of 99 subjects (23.1%) were undernourished, 43 (10 %) were overweight while 30 (7.3%) were obese. Frequent fast food consumption was found to increase the odds of malnutrition (OR=1.4) while adequate daily physical activity (OR=0.7) and frequent fruit intake (OR=0.6) were inversely correlated. Conclusions: Overweight and obesity are highly prevalent among adolescents, and health promotion strategies to change adolescents’ life style such as controlling the growth of fast food eating culture, promoting frequent fruit and vegetable intakes, and encouraging them to do adequate amount of daily physical activity are required.
