Other methods to calculate IBW

According to the formula of Devine (1974)

73.2 kilograms or 161.3 pounds.

Formulas:

  • Man: IBW = 50 + 2.3(h - 60)
  • Woman: IBW = 45.5 + 2.3(h - 60)

Note 1: Valid for age greater than 18 years old and height (h) between 140 and 220 cm
Note 2: height is in inches.

According to the formula of Lorentz (1929)

71.0 kilograms.

Formulas:

  • For men: IBW = (h − 100) − ((h − 150)/4)
  • For women: IBW = (h − 100) − ((h − 150)/2)

Note: height (h) is in cm.

According to the formula of Lorentz (accounting for age)

58.3 kilograms.

Formula:

  • IBW = 50 + (h - 150)/4 + (a - 20)/4

Note: height (h) is in centimeters and age (a) in years.

According to the formula of Peck's (1974)

69.9 kilograms.

Formulas:

  • Man (18 more than years old): IBW = -130.736 + (4.064 * h)
  • Woman (18 more than 18 years old): IBW = -111.621 + (3.636 * h)
  • Boy (18 years old or less): IBW = -59.6035 + (5.2878 * h) - (0.123939 * h2) + (0.00128936 * h3)
  • Girl (18 years old or less): IBW = -77.55796 + (6.93728 * h) - (0.171703 * h2) + (0.001726 * h3)

Note: height (h) is in inches and ranges from 17 to 86 inches (45 to 220 cm)
