Your BMI is

Powered by BMI Calculator

Your BMI (Body Mass Index) can be used as tool to screen for potential weight issues, as well as help you track your own weight related changes. Please note that your BMI is only one unit of measurement and there are several other types of measurement (body fat measurement, blood pressure, cholesterol, pulse, etc.) that are just as important. Several things contribute to your BMI, for example, someone who is very athletic and muscular may have a higher BMI due to increased muscle mass. To calculate your BMI enter your current weight and height into the calculator.
