Abstract

Almost all definitions revealed coexistence of underweight, overweight, and obesity among Isfahani adolescents. Huge differences exist between different criteria for assessing weight status among children. To understand the best appropriate criteria for Iranian adolescents, future studies should focus on the predictability of obesity related co-morbidities by these criteria.
