Kim TH, Kang HM, Oh IH, Yeo SG - Clin Exp Otorhinolaryngol (2015)

Bottom Line: Obesity rates have been increasing for all population groups worldwide, leading to the increased development of various diseases.The relationships among the prevalence rates of overweight and obesity, morbidity period, and BMI were assessed in each group.However, the rates of overweight did not differ significantly in the COM, rhinosinusitis, and tonsillitis compared with the control group (P>0.05 each).

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Obesity rates have been increasing for all population groups worldwide, leading to the increased development of various diseases. This study was designed is to identify the relationships between obesity and several important otorhinolaryngologic diseases, including chronic otitis media (COM), chronic rhinosinusitis, and chronic tonsillitis.

Methods: Mean body mass index (BMI) was compared in patients with COM, rhinosinusitis, and tonsillitis and in a control group. The relationships among the prevalence rates of overweight and obesity, morbidity period, and BMI were assessed in each group.

Results: Mean BMIs in the COM, rhinosinusitis, and tonsillitis groups were 24.45±2.72 kg/m(2), 24.68±3.25 kg/m(2), and 24.67±3.82 kg/m(2), respectively, with each significantly higher than in the control group (23.22±3.01 kg/m(2), P<0.05). The rates of obesity in the COM, rhinosinusitis, and tonsillitis groups were 37.5%, 42.9%, and 40.1%, respectively, each significantly higher than in the control group (24.3%, P<0.05). However, the rates of overweight did not differ significantly in the COM, rhinosinusitis, and tonsillitis compared with the control group (P>0.05 each).

Conclusion: Mean BMI and the prevalence of obesity were elevated in the three groups of patients with representative otorhinolaryngologic inflammatory diseases, including COM, chronic rhinosinusitis, and chronic tonsillitis.

Mentions: Mean BMI was significantly higher in patients with COM (24.45±2.72 kg/m2), chronic rhinosinusitis (24.68±3.25 kg/m2), and chronic tonsillitis (24.67±3.82 kg/m2) compared with the control group (23.22±3.01 kg/m2, P<0.05 each) (Fig. 1). Relative to the control group, in which 24.3% of patients were obese, the percentages of obese patients were significantly higher in the COM (37.5%, P=0.036), chronic rhinosinusitis (42.9%, P=0.002) and chronic tonsillitis (40.1%, P=0.009) groups (Fig. 2), but the percentages of overweight patients did not differ significantly in each group relative to the control group (Fig. 2).
