Interactive Tool: Is Your BMI Increasing Your Health Risks?
What does your score mean?
Your score will appear as one of the following ranges:
- Healthy weight and waist size: Your weight and waist size do not put you at risk for serious health problems.
- Moderate risk: Your weight or waist size is one reason you are at moderate risk for serious health problems. Talk to your doctor about ways to lower your risk.
- High risk: Your weight or waist size is one reason you are at higher-than-normal risk for serious health problems that could shorten your life. Talk to your doctor about ways to lower your risk.
