Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. While BMI can be used as an initial tool to screen for obesity, it does have limitations. The WHO recognizes these limitations, stating that BMI is only “a crude population measure of obesity.”

Height and weight must be measured to calculate BMI. These measurements can be taken in a healthcare provider’s office, or at home using a tape measure and scale.

Waist Circumference

Another way to estimate your potential disease risk is to measure your waist circumference. Excessive abdominal fat is important to consider because it places you at greater risk for developing obesity-related conditions, such as Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease.

Your waistline may be telling you that you have a higher risk of developing obesity-related conditions if you are:

A man whose waist circumference is more than 40 inches (102 cm)

A non-pregnant woman whose waist circumference is more than 35 inches (88 cm)

How To Properly Measure Waist Circumference 

  1. Stand and place a tape measure around your middle, just above your hipbones.
  2. Make sure tape is horizontal around the waist.
  3. Keep the tape snug around the waist, but not compressing the skin.
  4. Measure your waist just after you breathe out.
