BMI is the number, derived by using height and weight measurements, that gives a general indication if weight falls within a healthy range.
BMI is a general indicator, but should be used in conjunction with other tools to measure your actual health range. BMI levels vary depending on
factors such as age, gender and race. A basic table of BMI ranges is shown below.
Please remember, however, that this is only one of many possible ways to assess your weight. If you have any concerns about your weight, please discuss them with your physician, who is in a position, unlike this BMI calculator, to address your specific individual situation.
