How does the BMI service work?
One of our highly trained colleagues will have a private consultation with you in order to calculate and discuss your current BMI. If necessary, our colleague can then offer advice on how to achieve a healthier BMI.
What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?
Body Mass Index or BMI is a tool used to see if you are at a healthy weight. BMI uses your height and weight to calculate if you are a healthy weight, overweight or underweight.
Why is it important to monitor my BMI?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) lists a high BMI as a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, bone and joint problems including osteoarthritis and a number of cancers, including breast, colon and endometrial cancer.
