Abstract :The degree of obesity and its change in time course were analyzed for the students of the university of the Ryukyus, in order to elucidate whether Okinawan students have a higher incidence of obesity compared to those of other prefectures, as it is generally considered. Fourteen hundred and forty eight students (809 males and 639 females) were selected from 3,385 students (2,262 males and 1,123 females), who successively attended the annual medical checkup held in May from 1992 to 96. The students were divided into two groups, Okinawan and non-Okinawan, the latter coming from other prefectures. The body mass index (BMI) was obtained from their heights and weights. Percent body fat (%BF) was measured by the impedance method. The average values of %BF and BMI in males were higher in Okinawans than non-Okinawans, but were contrary in females. The BMI values gradually increased during the four successive years in both groups of male students. For the female students, however, the circumstances were different; the BMI became lower in Okinawans as the school days progressed, but it became highest in the second year and got lower thereafter in non-Okinawans. As age progressed, BMI increased in both groups of male students, but it decreased in both groups of female students from age 18 to 22, in which the decreasing rate was higher in non-Okinawans. In non-Okinawans, BMI decreased until age 23. The differences in BMIs between the males and females were discussed. The result that the BMI and %BF of non-Okinawan females were higher than those of Okinawan females was contrary to those of other previous works or the generally accepted concept. These resuits were also discussesd.
