BMI (Body Mass Index)

BMI at glance

What is BMI

BMI acronym stands for Body mass index and it's calculated using an individual height and weight. It is used to estimate body fat. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems. This application provides BMI and the corresponding weight category.

For children and teens the BMI is calculated the same way as for adults. However, for children and teens the criteria used to interpret the meaning of the BMI are different from those used for adults.

Who can use this application

Since this application does not target the children and teens, it has to be used by adults of age 18 years old or older only. I'm planning to add an option for children and teens in the future.
