Obesity is becoming a serious public health issues in worldwide and is related to lung dysfunction. Higher percentage of body fat is associated with lower lung volumes. (1) Direct and indirect measures of adiposity had similar associations with lung function. According to the study shows that there is a connection between the lung volumes and different level of body mass index. When individual weight is increased, lung volume gets altered. Our study shows that the increase in weight status is associated with a general reduction in lung volume measurements which may reflect decrease lung volume in obese people than the overweight. The lung volume of overweight people decreased than the normal people.
