  Obesity is global epidemic phenomena in both developed and developing country as in Indonesia, especially in urban area. Genetic, overeating, low physical activity and lack of sleep are risk factors of obesity. Daily activities should increase quality of sleep. In fact, lifestyle changes in teenagers like overeating and low physical activity affect their whole health, either the physical health (causing obesity) or the sleep quality. The poor quality of sleeping in teenagers with obesity cause drowsiness during learning process in the school and hypoventilation so that occurs the decreasing concentration of study in the school. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between physical activity and concentration of study of teenagers in Yogyakarta. The study design was observational study with cross-sectional methods. Subject were 360 high school students grades X and XI in Yogyakarta. Modified International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) were utilized to collect the data. Data were analyzed univariate and bivariate and tested using chi-square test. 54.7% teenagers had moderate physical activity level over 45.3% teenagers had heavy level of physical activity. Most of teenagers had good concentration of study (71.1%) and the rest of them had poor concentration of study (28.9%). Chi square test showed, there was a relationship between physical activity and concentration of study (p = 0.005) with OR value 1.98 which explains heavy activity brings about better concentration of study. So, physical activity significantly affects concentration of study of teenagers in Yogyakarta (p<0.05).

  Obesity has raised more concerns in developing countries than ever before as the prevalence continues to increase. Numerous studies seek to learn the role of physical activity in tackling obesity and related health problems. Several methods have been developed to measure physical activity; questionnaire methods are currently the cheapest and fastest compared to the other methods available. However, the validity of the questionnaire used should be a concern for investigators. This study’s objective is to evaluate the relative validity of the Short-Form International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) using a 24 h physical activity recall repeated 7 times. Obese adolescent female students were recruited from several junior high schools in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The students were then administered a 24 h physical activity recall for seven consecutive days. They were also administered the IPAQ-SF. The results from the physical activity recall and the IPAQ-SF were then analyzed statistically to obtain the Spearman correlation coefficient. There was a small but significant correlation between total physical activity from the IPAQ-SF and the physical activity recall r = 0.24). Moreover, vigorous physical activity derived from the IPAQ-SF was also significantly correlated with that of the physical activity recall r = 0.28). Results from the Indonesian version of the IPAQ-SF had a small but significant correlation with physical activity recall. This result showed that the Indonesian version of the IPAQ-SF is a valid method for measuring physical activity among obese adolescent girls.

  Background: Socioeconomic status (SES) has an important role in defining trend of obesity and it is believed that rich people of poor countries who live in urban areas show high rate of obesity. However, there is a controversy regarding the role of socioeconomic factors on overweight and obesity of people living in rural areas. Objectives: The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of socioeconomic factors on the prevalence of obesity in women living in Raas and Sapudi islands that represents Indonesian rural areas. Materials and Methods: A total of 376 housewives, living in remote Indonesian islands (Raas and Sapudi), took part in this cross sectional study. In this study, nutritional status measurements, interviews and observations done by trained enumerators. A student’s t-test was used to compare differences of socioeconomic factors among women with and without overweight/obesity. Results: Distance to the food source and expenses to buy food were related to overweight/obesity (p<0.05). Additionally, overweight/obese women were married at a younger age compared to those women who were not overweight (16±3 yo vs. 17±6 yo, p = 0.008). Economic status, such as monthly income and possession of the farm or ranch was not associated with overweight/obesity. However, women who work outside home were less likely to become overweight/obese (OR: 0.321; p = 0.001). Conclusion: The prevalence of obesity in women living in those remote islands was at an alarming rate and socioeconomic factors also have an important role in the prevalence of obesity.

  Background and Objective Studies have shown that adults with stunted growth have a higher risk of obesity and higher fat mass. This study aimed to assess whether stature was associated with risk of obesity and adverse body fat composition in Indonesian adolescents. Materials and Methods: This study used a cross-sectional study and included 730 adolescents aged 15-18 years in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Data on height and body mass index (BMI) were converted to height-for-age standard deviation scores (SDS) and BMI-for-age SDS, based on the World Health Organizations (WHO) 2007 guidelines. Body fat percentage was measured with the Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale (Omron HBF 516, Japan), which estimated body fat percentage using Bioelectrical Impedance Analyses. Individuals were designated as shorter or taller using median height-for-age SDS with a cut-off of 1.0. BMI-for-age SD, waist circumference, waist-to-height ratio and body fat percentage were compared using t-tests. Results: There was no difference in the odds for obesity between shorter and taller adolescents. While taller adolescents had large waist circumferences, after controlling for height, shorter female adolescents had larger waist-to-height ratios. Differences in body fat percentage were not consistent across gender and nutritional status. Conclusion: There was no difference in the odds for obesity between shorter and taller adolescents. However, after controlling for height, shorter adolescents had larger waist-to-height ratios.
