BODY MASS INDEX (BMI) CALCULATOR

 

Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator, also known as the Quetelet index, is a numerical figure calculated by using a person’s height and weight. Established in the 19th century, its popularity has increased since the 1970s, when many doctors began to develop correlations between BMI and overall health. Since then, it has become more important as obesity problems are on the rise around the world.

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this metric is “a reliable indicator of body fatness” that can be used to help doctors check for potential medical issues a patient may face later in life. As a result, patients who are looking to better improve their chances of prolonged health and longevity should consider using a BMI calculator so they can better assess their overall wellness.

 

At Longevity & Stem Cell Centre of Houston, we encourage our patients to take advantage of our easy-to-use online Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator. With the help of this figure, our anti-aging doctors can assess your obesity and nutritional status and instruct you on how to make an educated decision on treatments that are right for you.

 

Patients should have a score between 19 and 24, as those who are in this range have the best chance of living longer. A score below 19 may indicate that you are suffering from a disease that is making you underweight. Similarly, if your score is above 25, you could be putting yourself at risk for developing high blood pressure, cholesterol or blood insulin.

 

Still, if your BMI is high, there’s no need to panic. With the help of our modern anti-aging medicine and medical weight loss solutions, which combine hormonal treatments with nutrition regimens, we can help you lower your BMI in a way that is healthy and sustainable.
