Khaleel Ahmed Manik, P P Sheela Joice, Imran A Jagadal.

Abstract
Background: Obesity or overweight are the terms used for people who have a higher weight than the limits recommended for their age and sex. This has emerged as a major cause for many non-communicable diseases. Obesity is a risk factor for coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemias, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, hypoventilation, stoke, etc.

Aims and Objectives: The study aimed to comparison of neck circumference (NC) with body mass index (BMI) in all study subjects.

Materials and Methods: 150 subjects were studied and their NC and BMI recorded and compared.

Results: The (mean SD) BMI in overweight group is 23.94 0.55kg/m2, in obese group is 26.81 1.45 kg/m2, and in controls is 21.04 1.26 kg/m2. The (mean SD) NC in overweight group is 35.37 1.95, in obese group is 38.26 3.04, and in controls is 33.65 1.40. NC is significantly more in obese and overweight groups compared to controls and also in obese group compared to overweight group.

Conclusion: From the above results and discussion, we conclude that NC can be used as an alternative parameter to assess obesity.

Key words: Obesity; Neck Circumference; Body Mass Index
