Obesity and Neurologic Disorders

The two most common indexes in classifying obesity are: body mass index (BMI) and waist-to-hip ratio. BMI, a ratio of body weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared, is widely used for estimating body fat for most adults between 19 to 70 years of age, and correlates well with total body fat content in adults, despite that it does not distinguish excess fat from muscle builders and pregnant women.
