WHAT'S BMI?

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height, and applies to most adult men and women aged 20 and over. For children aged 2 and over, BMI percentile is the best assessment of body fat.

BMIとは体重と身長で算出した体格指数を表します。BMIは20歳以上の男女の体脂肪を測るのに適しており、2歳以上、20歳以下の方の体脂肪を測りたい場合はBMI Percentileで計測をしてください。

WHY IS BMI IMPORTANT?

A body mass index in the low range signals that you could be malnourished. Maybe your body isn’t properly absorbing nutrients or maybe you’re just not getting enough calories to support your activity level. Conversely, having a BMI on the higher end alerts your physician that your risks of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers are higher than someone with a normal BMI. Your doctor might set you up with a registered dietitian, who can help you get your weight back on track and reduce your risk of developing health problems.

BMIの値が低い方は栄養失調の可能性があります。体が正しく栄養を吸収していない、もしくは日常生活を支える十分なカロリーを得ていない可能性があります。反対にBMIの値が高い方はBMI平均値の方よりも心臓疾患や癌になる可能性が高いといえます。今後どうやって体重を減らすのか、そして、これから起こりうる病気の可能性をいかに減らしていくのか、栄養士と相談することをおすすめします。
