BMI app helps measure health risk – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. A body mass index or BMI of about 19 to 24 is normal, where a BMI of 30 or more is a sign of obesity. Karen Donato at the NIH says having a BMI calculator app makes finding your BMI easy.
Donato: I think the app is just an easy way for people to calculate your body mass index if you're curious about whether or not you fall within the normal or overweight category as well as in the obese category.
Narrator: She adds that knowing your BMI is just one part of your health picture. For more on finding your BMI, visit www.nhlbi.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the NIH, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
