What is BMI?

The Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a measurement tool used to assess whether your weight falls within a range considered healthy for your height. This measurement provides a general indication of the amount of body fat you have in relation to your stature. However, it's essential to keep in mind that the BMI has its limitations: it cannot distinguish between different types of tissues, such as fat and muscle, nor does it take into account the distribution of fat in the body. Despite its limitations, the BMI remains a useful tool for healthcare professionals to assess the potential risk of certain weight-related diseases. It's always advisable to combine the assessment of BMI with other medical measurements and considerations to obtain a complete picture of health.
