Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a ratio of a person’s weight and height. BMI provides an estimate of a person’s body fat. It can help determine if the amount of excess weight you are carrying puts you at risk for various weight related health problems. As a general rule, as your BMI increases above the normal range, your risk of weight-related health conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, infertility, and certain cancers also increase.
