Calculate your BMI
What Does BMI (Body Mass Index) Mean?
The BMI is a measure that provides us with the weight we have and the ideal weight that we should reach according to weight and height. In fact, the value that we obtain with the BMI calculator is used to categorize the patient in which weight level they are, that is, if they are underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. These ranges may vary depending on factors such as age and the region in which the patient is located. They can also be divided into categories such as too low weight or morbid obesity. Being in one of these subcategories can bring more complicated health problems. Therefore it is very important to know the BMI to start an effective action plan and health benefits.
How to Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is obtained from a simple mathematical formula, the patient must divide their weight by their height squared, that is, BMI= Lbs/H2.

If My BMI Shows That I am Overweight, What Are the Risks?
If the information provided by the patient places him in the category of obesity or overweight, this can increase the possibility of health complications that are sometimes too serious. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), the most common risks are:
- High pressure;
- High cholesterol;
- High triglycerides;
- Type II diabetes;
- Heart disease;
- Gallbladder disease.
If the patient is in the highest range of obesity, we can offer non-surgical, effective, and accessible weight-loss procedures such as The Orbera Gastric Balloon or the Overstitch, to help the patients bring BMI levels back to normal.
A patient is considered to have a healthy body mass index below 25. However, there are also risks associated with having your BMI below the levels you should be at.
What if my BMI shows that I am underweight?
Being below the ideal weight, we do not face associated risks such as:
- Deficiency in vitamins;
- Hormonal imbalances in women and reproductive problems.
