Psychiatric diag. vs BMI with hyperkinetic disorders as reference category


Psychiatric diagnoses and weight categories based on age- and sex-adjusted BMI (Mangerud et al., 2014).

Table 7.5 shows the number of thin, normal weight, and overweight subjects within each of six psychiatric diagnoses, based on the same study as in Section 7.2.2 (Mangerud et al., 2014). Body mass index (BMI) is calculated as the weight in kg divided by the squared height in meters. In subjects aged 18 years or older, the cut-off points for being categorized as thin, normal weight, and overweight are BMI less than 18.5, BMI between 18.5 and 25, and BMI above 25, respectively. For younger subjects (below 18 years of age), the categorization was done following internationally adopted cut-off points for age and sex (Cole et al., 2000, 2007). For example, the cut-off point for being overweight at age 13 is 21.91 for males and 22.58 for females.
