Calculate Your Body Mass Index


The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight of adults. The higher the BMI, the higher your risk for certain diseases including high blood pressure, Heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

To calculate your Body Mass Index, use the BMI Calculator available on the Canadian Diabetes Association website.  Compare your BMI to the numbers in the following categories: 



        • Underweight = <18.5
        • Normal weight = 18.5 - 24.9
        • Overweight = 25 - 29.9
        • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
