“…A study investigating the agreement between the WHO and Lipschitz methods for classifying nutritional status of older people found that rates of excess weight (overweight/obesity) were high for both sets of cut-off points, at 50.4% and 31.3%, respectively 23 . Palma et al 24 , in a study comparing the Lipschitz 8 and PAHO 9 methods for classifying BMI in 424 older residents of a city located in the northern part of Rio Grande do Sul state, found similarly high rates of excess weight for both criteria (51.4% Lipschitz 8 versus 49.1 % PAHO 9 ). In 2019, the Surveillance System for Chronic Diseases by Telephone Survey revealed a prevalence of overweight of 59.8% and of obesity of 20.9% in older people (≥ 65 years) 13 .…”
