Body mass index and mortality: understanding the patterns and paradoxes

The optimal body mass index (BMI) associated with lowest risk of all cause mortality is not known. As excess adiposity increases risk of conditions such as diabetes that reduce life expectancy, one might expect increasing BMI to be associated with increasing mortality. However, compared with normal weight, underweight is associated with increased mortality and modestly elevated BMI is associated with lower mortality. The former pattern is only partly explained by confounding by smoking or comorbidity, and the second observation has been called the obesity paradox.1 In addition, the influence on mortality of different patterns of weight change throughout the life course is poorly understood. Two linked papers attempt to shed light on these important subjects.2 3
