Understanding Your BMI
Your body mass index, or BMI, indicates your weight level based on a ratio between height and weight. This BMI formula creates a standardized measurement as a guide to the impact your weight may have on your health risks. Our team of weight loss specialists will talk with you about your individual BMI and help you understand all of the medical weight loss solutions we offer.
If you have a significantly elevated BMI, you many not meet the qualifications for weight loss surgery immediately because of the higher risk based on your current weight. Our team will help you understand all of your weight loss choices and perhaps recommend approaching your weight loss goals through more of a phased approach.
