Take Control

Knowing your BMI can help put you on the right path to better health.

Your BMI (Body Mass Index) is an estimated measurement of your overall body fat level based on your height and weight. BMI calculated results do not reflect body fat directly as some body types and activity levels can vary, but show general population categorizations based on CDC recommended formulas for underweight, normal, overweight or obese ranges. Having a high BMI may be an indicator that you are at risk for developing chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Knowing your BMI and the chart ranges that guide recommendations can be an important first step toward improving your health.
