A normal BMI is between18.5 and 25; a person with a BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight; and a person with a BMI over 30 is considered obese. A person is considered underweight if the BMI is less than 18.5.
In general, the higher your BMI, the higher the risk of developing a range of conditions linked with excess weight, including diabetes arthritis liver disease several types of cancer (such as those of the breast, colon, and prostate) high blood pressure (hypertension) high cholesterol sleep apnea.
Research suggests that BMI alone frequently misclassifies metabolic health, which is linked to how much fat a person has and how it is distributed.
