Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a mathematical calculation that is used as an indicator of whether you are at a healthy weight for your height.
Calculating your BMI is a simple sum that requires your Pharmacist to enter your weight and height into a calculator. Once you know your current BMI value, your Pharmacist can assist you in achieving a transition to a healthy BMI range, if required.
Maintaining a healthy weight is important for your health. If you have reached an unhealthy weight, then you may be at risk of developing other serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
It is important to note however, that there are some limitations to the BMI measurement as it is based on weight, and cannot provide a reading of body muscle versus body fat percentages.
