June is Men’s Health Month – a good time to remember that prevention can go a long way to keeping you healthy. Preventive screenings can help you catch health problems early when they may be more easily treatable.
Body mass index, or BMI, is a way to determine if you’re at a healthy weight for your height. BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters.
A BMI from 18.5 to 24.9 is considered to be healthy.
- If your BMI is below 18.5, you are probably underweight.
- If your BMI is 25 or over, you are probably overweight.
- If your BMI is over 30, you are classified as obese.
