Abstract

Obesity is frequently associated with functional changes that may affect work capacity, so we administered to a group of 198 overweight-obese subjects with median BMI of 32.7 and median waist circumference of 101 cm, the test-TSD OC which consists of 7 sections (pain, stiffness, activities of daily life, activities of the house, instrumental activities of daily living, work, social relations) f or a total of 36 visual analogical scales. After the identification of 4 workers categories (health, services, administration, commerce/industry), resulted homogeneous for age, BMI, CV, we saw that the work section was more compromised for health and services. The overall disability increases especially in relation to BMI and seems influenced by age and sex.
