WHAT BMI MEANS

Body mass index (BMI) is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. Excess body fat is related to serious health conditions. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass

  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

  • Inadequately evaluate health risks of people with excess abdominal fat

 

In addition, people of Asian descent may have an increased risk of health problems at a lower BMI threshold than the general population. Asians with a BMI of 23 or higher may be at risk.

Talk with your doctor if you have questions about your BMI.
