Body Mass Index (BMI) Nomogram
This BMI nomogram is not intended for use with:
- those under 18 years of age,
- and pregnant and lactating women.
You can also calculate your BMI using this formula:
BMI = weight(kg)/height(m)2
|BMI||Classification||Risk of developing health problems|
|less than 18.5||Underweight||Increased|
|18.5 - 24.9||Normal Weight||Least|
|25.0 - 29.9||Overweight||Increased|
|30.0 - 34.9||Obese class I||High|
|35.0 - 39.9||Obese class II||Very high|
|equal to or greater than 40.0||Obese class III||Extremely high|
Note: For persons 65 years and older the 'normal' range may begin slightly above BMI 18.5 and extend into the 'overweight' range.
