POSSIBLE WEIGHT IN OBESE PATIENTS

 

Karagenzian O, Romero A, Cormillot A. Clínica Cormillot, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

8th International Congress on Obesity, Paris, France. September 1998.

We studied 286 patients, 250 women and 36 men and registered the variables Sex, Age, Hight, Weight, Ideal Weight (IW), Maximum Weight (MW), Years of Obesity (YO) (AO), Actual Weight (AW); and Time Maintained (TM) in Possible Weight (PW).

The definition of possible weight was provided by A. Cormillot and A. Fuchs in "A Possible weight. Progress in obesity research" 1990 (pp. 663-664) London; John Libbey.

PW = PI + 0.1 (ED - 20) + 0.1 AO (ED >20) + 0.1(PM - P Y) (1)

The Actual Weight is explained by the Possible Weight calculated according to (1) (in function of Age, Ideal, Weight, Maximum Weight and Years of Obesity).

Fitting a multilinear regression we obtain:

AW= 1.21 IW + 0.79 0.1 (MW-IW) + 1.13 0.1 YO - 6.65 (2)

Multiple correlation coeficient R2 = 0.7122

This means that 71.22% of the Actual Weights are all explained by the formula proposed by Cormillot et al.

Correlation between predicted values of PW and AW (this one calculated by (2) is r=0.8523 (p << 0.005).
