Calculate Your BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is a measure used by physicians and dietitians to determine weight status (i.e. underweight, overweight or within a healthy weight range).

People who are overweight or obese are more likely to have chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.

Any overweight person should limit weight gain. In addition, if you are overweight with other dangerous factors (such as high LDL cholesterol, low HDL, or high blood pressure), you should try weight loss. Even losing a little weight (only 10% of your current weight) may help reduce the risk of disease.
