According to The 2012 SEMDSA Guideline - The obesity prevalence in coloured women was 26.3% and in black women 31.8% in comparison to that in white women of 21.1%.
For people of Asian/Indian descent, obesity and diabetes does not correlate closely as they are generally of smaller build; for this reason the World Health Organisation recommends the use of lower BMI levels when managing Indian and Asian patients. A person is “at risk” at a BMI of 22-25kg/m2. A smaller waist circumference (women >80cm, men >90cm) should also be used to assess risk.
