BMI for teenagers is so variable - some are fully grown and must be counted as adults while others have proportions like kids and have a lower threshold for obesity. Being considered obese at 5'6" and 169 lbs sounds off..

Hello James, I'd suggest you go to the blubbbusters home page and click on the icon for "Weight Calculator". Input your son's information (birth date, height, weight). It's very easy to use. When I inputted the info you gave for your son, using Jan. 1, 2003 as his birthdate, it says he's "obese". To me, the main thing is how he looks to you compared to when he was younger. If he looks chubby or fat to you now, that's the important thing and you need to consider if you want to bring the subject up with him.

A 15 year old that is 5'6" tall and weighs 169 lbs is not fat at all.
