My nurse provided me with information about my height and weight, what can this tell me about my health?

Your height and weight information can be used to calculate Body Mass Index (BMI).  BMI is a frequently used measure of health. When reading your BMI score your age, sex, and ethnic group should also be taken in to account.

Further information on this calculation and guidance on your BMI can be found on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator/
