What can my weight tell me about my health?

In the health visit we will ask to weigh you. We can record this on a card you can keep. If you know your height, you can 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 into 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/
