Abstract
Objectives: To estimate the magnitude of weight stigmatization and identify high risk groups in tomorrow?s health professional. Methodology: A cross-sectional analytical study was conducted [March to December 2012] in six different institutes in Karachi, Pakistan. Data were collected from undergraduate students of medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, pharmacy and nursing through self-administered questionnaires. Stigmatization occurred if colleagues/friends made fun of participant?s weight. Ethical approval was obtained from the University of Sheffield, UK and Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, Pakistan. Logistic regression was used to determine the factors associated with weight stigmatization. Results: Of 2114 participating students, 27.1% reported feeling stigmatized because of their weight. Men were more likely to report stigmatization compared to women [OR=2.25 (95%C.I: 1.72-2.93)], and compared to normal weight individuals, individuals in all other categories were more likely to report stigmatization: underweight [OR=2.52 (95%C.I: 1.93-3.28)], overweight [OR=1.44 (95%C.I: 1.03-2.02)], Obese [OR=2.29 (95%C.I: 1.73-3.05)]. Compared to medicine/dentistry/physiotherapy students, both pharmacy and nursing students experienced stigma: pharmacy students [OR=1.52 (95%C.I: 1.15-2.00)] and nursing students [OR=3.37 (95%C.I: 2.33-4.87)]. Stigmatization was more likely for participants who received weight-related comments from parents [OR=1.89 (95%C.I: 1.48-2.41)], and siblings [OR=2.89(95% C.I: 2.29-3.66)]. Conclusion: Weight stigmatization is highly prevalent among undergraduate students of medicine and allied health sciences in Karachi with over a quarter of respondents having experienced it.
