Abstract

Background and Objective
Overweight and obesity among women of childbearing age are important. We aim to evaluate the frequency of overweight and obesity among Saudi women of childbearing age.
Methods
We conducted a cross section study to analyze female participants. A total of 5152 between the ages 15 to 49 years were selected to be enrolled for the present study between January 2018 to December 2019 at the Endocrinology Department of King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. BMI values classified into groups as lean (BMI <18 BMI=18.5>2), overweight (BMI=25.0 - 29.9kg/m2), obese Grade I (BMI=30 - 34.9kg/m2), obese Grade II (BMI=35.0 - 39.9kg/m2) and morbidly obese (obese Grade III) (BMI?40kg/m2).
