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:
- Normal weight = 18.5 - 24.9
- Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
