Allometric scaling of weight to height and resulting body mass index thresholds in two Asian populations
Nutrition & Diabetes
Body mass index (BMI) represents a normalization of weight to height and is used to classify adiposity. While the capacity of BMI as an adiposity index has been experimentally validated in Caucasians, but there has been little testing Asian populations.
