Description:Classification and interpretation of BMI (Body Mass Index). Classifications include levels of underweight, normal, overweight, and obesity. Also interpretation of potential risk for other health problems related to BMI interpretation.
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Comments:BMI (Body Mass Index) now is more widely used for assessment of weight status rather than the weight charts. The only draw back to BMI, is that it cannot take into account increased muscle mass - which is denser and heavier than adipose tissue. With aging, height should be periodically obtained because of height loss in adult life stages.
