According to sex-disaggregated data, BMI index within the obese range was observed in 36,6% among smoking men compared to 16,4% among smoking women(p<0.001) .The highest share of BMI index within the obese range was observed among smokers in the age group over 60 years with 62,3%, followed by those aged between 50 and 59 years with 44,4% (p<0.001).
