Abstract Share this page

Objective . To describe the prevalence of overweight and obesity (SYO) in Mexican adults older than 20 years and detail the trend in the last three surveys. Material and methods . A sample of 38 208 adults with anthropometry was considered. The classification to categorize body mass index (BMI) was that of the World Health Organization (WHO). For abdominal obesity, the classification of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) was used. Results . The prevalence was 71.3% SYO (38.8% overweight and 32.4% obese). The prevalence of abdominal obesity was 74.0%, being higher in women (82.8%) than men (64.5%). In the last 12 years it has seen an annualized average 1.3% increase, this being higher in the period 2000-2006 (1%) in the period 20,062,012 (0.3%). Conclusion . While trends show a slowing increase in prevalence, there is no evidence to infer that diminish in the coming years. Therefore, public policies for prevention and control should be intensified and improved.
