Remember that prevention really is better than cure, so keeping your 3 numbers in the right range is really important for your health. Combining three good numbers with regular exercise, avoiding smoking and not drinking too much alcohol minimises your risk of developing many diseases.
The healthy B.M.I. range is 20-25 and your local NewWeigh Pharmacy can calculate it for you or you can use our B.M.I. calculator link below. As your B.M.I. increases, so does your risk of getting a weight related illness including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnoea and joint pain.
Losing even a small amount of weight, 5% or more, will reduce your blood pressure & improve joint pain.
If your B.M.I. is high and you are in the obese range or higher, the task of losing weight can seem impossible. However, losing any amount of weight has health benefits and should encourage you to try.
