Body Mass Index Calculator for Youth and Adults
Use this tool to track your child's growth, and to calculate your own body mass index (BMI). A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. To determine if a high BMI is a health risk, a healthcare provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other screening tests.
