Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of excess body weight indicating whether a person has a healthy weight for his/her height or not. BMI is one of the many determining factors that a bariatric expert takes into account when evaluating a patient for a weight-loss procedure.
Our free BMI calculator is a simple online tool that you can use to quickly assess your BMI score and learn your weight category: underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obesity (class I, II, III, or IV). You can take the measurements at home using a tape measure and scale or at your healthcare provider's office.
The BMI calculator is a useful tool for initial screening but it is very general in determining the amount of excess body fat of a person and his health status. It does not take into account a patient's age, gender, body composition, activity level, and other important factors. While this BMI calculator can be used by men and women age 18 or older, additional screening and evaluation by a medical professional are required to more accurately identify the potential health risks.
