Description

Body Mass Index (BMI)/Indice de masse Corporelle(IMC) is a number calculated from a person''s weight and height. BMI is a fairly reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. It is used as a screening tool to identify possible weight problems for adults. BMI does not measure body fat directly. BMI is not a diagnostic tool. For example, a person may have a high BMI. However, to determine if excess weight is a health risk, a healthcare provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings.


As a result, some individuals may have a high BMI but not have a high percentage of body fat.

For example, highly trained athletes may have a high BMI because of increased muscularity rather than increased body fatness. Although some people with a BMI in the overweight range (from 25.0 to 29.9) may not have excess body fatness, most people with a BMI in the obese range (equal to or greater than 30) will have increased levels of body fatness.

It is also important to remember that weight is only one factor related to risk for disease. If you have questions or concerns about the appropriateness of your weight, you should discuss them with your healthcare provider.
