What is my BMI?
BMI is a measurement of whether you are at a healthy weight for your height, it is the most widely used method and acts as a starting point for further discussion about weight and general health. BMI takes into account natural variations in body shape, giving a healthy weight range for a particular height.
Knowing your BMI result, and therefore, what category it puts you in i.e. underweight, healthy, overweight, or obese will help set goals for managing your weight.
|Below 18.5||Underweight range|
|Between 18.5 and 24.9||Healthy weight range|
|Between 25 and 29.9||Overweight range|
|30 or over||Obese range|
A BMI above the healthy weight range can not only increase the risk of heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes and some cancers, it can also cause debilitating issues in everyday life and lead to psychological problems, such as depression and low self-esteem.
Get your BMI checked in-store today, book an appointment for an initial consultation with our pharmacist and we'll discuss the options available to help you achieve your weight management goals. It is also important to note that BMI may be an unsuitable way of measuring healthy weight for some individuals, for example athletes who have a high percentage of muscle mass. Our pharmacist will be happy to explain this in more detail to you at your appointment.
If you cannot make it to an in-store consultation, you can also calculate your BMI yourself using the online NHS BMI Calculator
Being overweight can have a significant impact on your health. It can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. By reducing your weight to within a healthy range you can help protect your future health.
