Ask the Nurse

My weight is 193 pounds, and I am 5'5". What is my BMI?

You can calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) using our free BMI Calculator.

BMI can be used to indicate if you are overweight, obese, extremely obese, underweight or normal. People with BMIs of 25 and above are considered to be overweight. Having a body mass index over 30 places you at risk for developing obesity-related medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. A BMI over 40 indicates that a person is morbidly obese.

All My Best,
