cut-off points are widely accepted, and have been used as the global standard for age- and gender-specific norms of BMI classifications to categorise overweight and obesity in youths aged 2-18 years old.
As mentioned earlier, we applied the IOTF
criteria cut-points to categorize overweight and obesity status.
Third, the present study used IOTF
reference standards for determining the prevalence of overweight and obesity while the national study used WHO reference standards for the same purpose.
Therefore the aim of this study was to provide sufficient information on obesity among school children aged 10-13 years in Bahrain; using two commonly used reference standards; IOTF
and WHO standards.
cutoffs are an extrapolation of the adult BMI cutoff points for overweight (25 kg/[m.

thresholds for overweight and obesity and their relation to metabolic risk in children (EarlyBird 20).
It proposes corresponding paediatric cut-offs and IOTF
reference curves for overweight and obesity are superimposed upon the UK BMI charts.
In some studies, BMI data are compared with international cut-off points using IOTF
(International Obesity Task Force) standards, presented by Cole et al.
The purpose of this NCI-FDA IOTF
Molecular Diagnostics subcommittee  workshop was to bring together key stakeholders in the proteomics community to explore the analytical validation issues for protein-based marker panels and any new technologies for their intended use.
