Body Mass Index (BMI) is a ratio of your weight to height. It estimates the total body fat and assesses the risks for diseases related to increased body fat. The risk of developing many diseases increases with a higher BMI. You can use this calculator to find out your BMI.
Asians and Asian Americans may have increased health risks at a lower BMI. Therefore, the outcomes of this BMI Calculator was designed specifically for Asian and Asian American Adults. BMI cutoff points on this chart are lower than those defined by National Institutes of Health (NIH).
*BMI may not apply to athletes who tend to have large muscle mass, elderly people, pregnant women and children
