BMI and Risk factors

Body mass index (BMI) is one method also used to estimate your total amount of body fat. It is calculated by dividing our weight in kilograms by our height in meters squared. BMI calculations will also overestimate the amount of body fat for the bodybuilders, some high-performance athletes, and pregnant women. If you are overweight (with a BMI over 25) and you are physically inactive, you may develop in cardiovascular (heart and blood circulation) disease, gallbladder disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, such as colon and breast cancer, osteoarthritis, depression and other mental health disorders. If you are underweight (BMI less than 18.5), you may be malnourished and develop in compromised immune function, respiratory disease, digestive diseases, cancer, osteoporosis.
