About BMI:

BMI in conjunction with waist size provides an overall view of health and risks of diseases such as:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • type2 diabetes

Although your BMI can fall inside the normal weight range this does not necessarily mean your not at risk for diseases listed above. As mentioned earlier, waist size also plays a role in determining overall health. So if you carry a significant amount of weight around your waist, it is recommended to visit a doctor for further evaluation.
