Abstract: 

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to report the prevalences of thinness, overweight and obesity among an urban population of Tehran adolescents aged 10-19 years based on a good obesity standard.
Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional survey among inhabitants of district-13 in the east of Tehran. A total of 3265 adolescents including 1541 boys and 1724 girls were included. Weight and height were measured using a standard protocol and body mass index (kg/m2 was calculated. The criteria used to define body composition were based on BMI cut-off points of the WHO Expert Committee.
Results: The overall relative frequency of thin adolescents was 10.9% (CI: 9.8-12.0) ; 13.0% (CI: 11.3-14.7) in boys vs. 9.0% (CI: 7.6-10.4) in girls (p<0.001). Overweight was seen in 12.6% (CI: 11.5-13.7) of adolescents; 11.8% (CI: 10.2-13.4) in boys vs. 13.3% (CI: 11.7-14.9) in girls (non-significant). Obesity was seen in 5.4% (CI: 4.6-6.2) of Tehran adolescents; 6.9% (CI: 5.6-8.2) in boys vs. 4.0% (CI: 3.1-4.9) in girls, p<0.001.
Conclusion: As a developing country passing through nutritional transition, both the problems of thinness and obesity are prevalent in Tehran(s) urban adolescents.
