Description














Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a
person’s weight and height.














BMI is used as an screening tool to identify
possible weight problems for adults/childs. However, BMI is not a diagnostic
tool.














BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat, such
as underwater weighing and dual energy xray


absorptiometry (DXA).

to


health problems.
