Body Mass Index, or BMI is the customary method used to measure obesity. It’s a calculation of your weight-to-height ratio and can provide insight into risk for diseases. It’s been shown that for every five-point increase in BMI, your risk of death increases 31% and while BMI can’t be used as a sole indicator for disease risk, it does help. It’s one element of your wellness that helps you and your doctors manage your health. You are welcome to check your BMI with us.
