Body mass index (BMI) is the measure of body fat based on height and weight. It applies to both adult men and women. A person with BMI score of 25 or above is considered overweight; 30 or above, obese; and 40 or above, morbidly obese. Being overweight can affect your health and can lead to life-threatening conditions. If you are overweight, losing some amount of weight can help you feel good and can improve your health. Obese people are more prone to develop serious health conditions such as heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoarthritis, back pain, depression, and some types of cancers.

Depending on your individual weight and health, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.Calculate your body mass index in order to determinewhether you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.
