What is a normal BMI?

A normal BMI typically ranges between18.5 and 25. A BMI of 25-30 is considered overweight, a BMI over 30 is considered obese, and less than 18.5 is considered underweight.

BMI is not a perfect test, however. Results can be impacted by pregnancy, high muscle mass, age, and even race. Consider BMI as more of a cautionary number. The higher one’s BMI, the higher the risk of developing:

  • diabetes
  • arthritis
  • liver disease
  • cancer
  • high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • high cholesterol
  • sleep apnea

If you have a high BMI, check with your doctor to determine whether or not you should be concerned.

1 foot = 12 inches, 2 feet = 24 inches, 3 feet = 36 inches, 4 feet = 48 inches, 5 feet = 60 inches, 6 feet = 72 inches, 7 feet = 84 inches, 8 feet = 96 inches

To measure in inches and pounds, remember to select “Imperial.”
Less than 18.5 = Underweight
18.5 – 25 = Normal
