Abstract:
Body mass index (BMI) of 149 male and female children, classified into three age groups (5-9, 10-14 and 15-18 years) having four different blood groups (A, B, AB and O), was estimated from different schools situated in Sargodha district. The highest BMI was found in boys of age 15-18 years, whereas the lowest BMI was observed in the students with 5-9 years age. Many male and female subjects from all age groups were found underweight but BMI values of group A and O subjects were found close to the normal values. Female subjects having AB blood group were found to have the highest BMI whereas subjects from blood group “A” exhibited the lowest BMI values. Female subjects with others two blood group (B and O) were found to have normal BMI values. Overall, the students of 5-18 years (male and female) belonging to different blood groups were found to have low BMI than the recommended values. It has been found that BMI of “O” subjects was better as compared to blood group A and B.
