  Body mass index (BMI) is a common, inexpensive and simple method to categorize individuals as underweight, normal weight, overweight, obese I and obese II. However, this method does not reflect body shape and fat distribution. Waist to hip ratio (WHR) is a more recent and accurate method to measure body fat distribution and can be used routinely. The purpose of this study was to compare BMI and WHR of Malaysian undergraduate medical students. The weight, height, waist line and hip line of 82 undergraduate medical students studying at SEGi University, Malaysia were measured and used to calculate BMI and WHR using the standard formula. For males, the highest mean BMI was recorded for Indian students followed by those for Malay and Chinese. However, for males, the highest mean WHR was recorded for Malay followed by those for Chinese and Indian. For females, both mean BMI and WHR were highest for Malay, followed by those for Indian and Chinese. No correlation was found between BMI and WHR among the overall and male participants respectively. However significant correlation was present between BMI and WHR among female participants (r value = 0.623). In conclusion, in this research, there was correlation between BMI and WHR in female population. Therefore the Malaysian females, specially Malay females should be more aware of their health, their food intake and they should take better care of their health, do more physical activity in order to have healthier life and get less exposed to diseases caused by high BMI and WHR.

  Dysmenorrhea is one of the common gynaecological problems experienced by most of the adolescent and young adult girls. This study was to evaluate the knowledge and determine the prevalence of primary dysmenorrhoea among female university students. This is a descriptive, cross sectional study conducted in 2014 at SEGi University, Kota Damansara. A total of 200 participants were randomly selected from the medical and non-medical faculties. The data were collected using questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS Version 22.0. The study showed that the prevalence of primary dysmenorrhoea among the students was 103 (51.5%) where the primary dysmenorrhoea among female medical and non-medical was 53 and 50%, respectively. In terms of knowledge about primary dysmenorrhoea, 39% of medical students and 24% of non-medical agree that body mass index is a risk factor while smoking and drinking alcohol showed 55 and 45%, respectively as a risk factor of primary dysmenorrhoea. On the other hand, psychological stress factor confirmed by 83% of medical students and 53% of non-medical students answered that psychological stress is correlated to primary dysmenorrhoea. In conclusion, the prevalence of primary dysmenorrhoea is very common in this study. The level of knowledge was shown lower, especially in the non-medical students. The results of this study showed the overall of primary dysmenorrhoea prevalence 51.5% and majority of medical student showed better knowledge about primary dysmenorrhoea. However, this study also has shown that there is lack of health education and may need programs in order to improve the knowledge and decrease the incidence of primary dysmenorrhoea.
