WHAT IS BMI
BMI (body mass index) is a measure of your nutritional status and also an indicator of the possible risk that your weight may have on your future health. It is defined as a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of the person’s height in metres (kg/m2).6
For example: An adult who weighs 70 kg and whose height is 1.75 m will have a BMI of 22.9.
BMI was developed as a risk indicator of disease; as BMI increases, so does the risk for some diseases. Some common conditions related to overweight and obesity include: premature death, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoarthritis, some cancers and diabetes.6,7 The greater the BMI, the greater the risk.7

WHAT DOES MY BMI VALUE MEAN?
BMI ranges are classified according to the disease risk your weight may have.6
For adults 20 years old, BMI falls into 1 of the following categories:
|18.5 – 24.9||Nomal Weight|
|25.0 – 29.9||Overweight|
Adapted from WHO and 2013 AHA/ACC/TOS Guideline for the Management of Overweight and Obesity in Adults6,7
The BMI is not perfect as it does not take your age, gender or physical activity into account, but it is a very useful tool used worldwide to identify people at risk of disease due to excessive weight.6
