Use the chart to locate your height and weight. The shaded regions on the chart correspond to weight ranges based on body mass index (BMI).
For adults 20 years and older:
Keep in mind that BMI is only a guide. It is not a tool to determine ideal body weight. It is a tool to help you see whether your weight is increasing your risk for disease. BMI does not work as well for people who are very muscular or those who have little muscle. A muscular person may have a high BMI but still have a healthy level of body fat. A person with very little muscle may have a normal BMI but have unhealthy levels of body fat.
If you are Asian, your health may be at risk with a lower BMI.
A person who has a large change in BMI, even if he or she is not overweight or underweight, should be evaluated to find the cause.

How do you define health? Physical? Mental? Social? Health goes beyond medical care. It's how we take care of ourselves, how we interact with our communities, how we take care of each other.
Let St. Luke's support your health, however you define it.
