Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) by entering your height and weight into our BMI calculator.
BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It is a calculation based on a person's height and weight. The result indicates whether a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese. Many experts associate obesity with an increased risk for such life-threatening diseases as heart disease and diabetes.
A number of guidelines are used to determine whether a patient will be accepted for weight loss surgery. The Lap Band is FDA approved
for use in people with a BMI over 30 with serious related health issues.
Such health issues can include severe arthritis, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, diabetes, and others.
