Common Questions/FAQs

What is Body Mass Index?
Body Mass Index is a scale that assesses your weight for your height to give an indication of whether or not your weight falls within a healthy range. It should not be taken as an absolute measure as it can be affected by many other variables and does not take into consideration muscle mass, bone density or stage of physical maturity. If you have concerns please speak to a health professional.
