A study on weight status and weight perception of GNM students of a nursing training centre, Bankura, West Bengal

, : A study on weight status and weight perception of GNM students of a nursing training centre, Bankura, West Bengal. Journal of the Indian Medical Association 105(2): 85-87

The present study revealed the existence of dual burden of underweight (35.5%) and overweight (5.1%) among the GNM students with mean body mass index of 20.14 and no obesity. The prevalence of faulty weight perception was 38.6% and was found to be weighted towards feeling higher weight. This accounted for the relatively lower prevalence of perceived underweight (24.4%) perceived normal weight (50%) and higher prevalence of perceived overweight (25.6%) compared to actual weight status based on body mass index.
