Body Mass Index Calculator
Body mass index, or BMI is used to gauge body fat in adults. Your BMI value gives you an indication of your risk of heart disease and other health problems.

This BMI calculator is based on the recommended BMI cut-off points for Asians, which have been adopted by public health action in Singapore. Recent studies have shown that many Asian populations, including Singaporeans, have higher proportion of body fat compared to Caucasians of the same age, gender and BMI. These studies also showed that Asians have increased risk for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus at relatively low BMI levels.

For a more complete analysis of your overall health, take into consideration other important measurements like body fat percentage and waist-hip ratio.
