Use our BMI calculator to check your body mass index and find out if you’re a healthy weight. Having a BMI that sits above your healthy weight range can bump up your risk of serious health problems like heart disease or Type 2 diabetes. And a BMI that puts you below your healthy weight range can disrupt your health too.
