There are many factors used to determine if you may be carrying excess weight, and if so, how much. Although there are many means used to determine a healthy weight, one of the simplest, most common diagnostic tools used to identify obesity is BMI.
BMI Generally, the higher the BMI, the greater the risk you have for obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease and stroke. Conversely, if your BMI is under 18 you are considered underweight and are at a higher risk of developing anemia, bone loss, kidney problems and heart problems.
Obesity has reached epidemic status. In fact, for the first time in more than two hundred years, the current generation of American children is predicted to have a shorter life span than their parents because of the rapid rise of childhood obesity and the preventable illnesses that accompany it.
