Abstract

The increasing prevalence of obese children and adolescents emphasizes the importance of national and international standards for screening childhood obesity. The main aim of the study was to construct the Hungarian cut-off values of waist-to-hip ratio, body fat percentage and visceral fat area to diagnose obesity and abdominal obesity in children aged between 7 and 18 years. The distribution of obese children diagnosed by the international standards as well as by the new national standards was compared in the analysis. A group of healthy children (n: 869 boys and 881 girls, aged between 7 and 18 years) formed the sample of the present analysis. Body composition and body fat distribution of subjects was estimated body impedance analysis (Inbody 720 device, Biospace, USA) and by anthropometric methods. Nutritional status was estimated by body mass index. The international cut-off values of body fatness indicators determined for adults as well as the centile distribution of body fatness indicators by age were used to construct the critical cut-off values of obesity and abdominal obesity in the studied age-group of subadults. By considering the results of the present analysis the age- dependent 95th centiles of body fat percentage and visceral fat area were recommended for screening childhood obesity and abdominal obesity in the studied age-group in both genders.
