Body Measurements

First Wave Wellness utilizes your body mass index (BMI) as an initial screening tool using weight and height to estimate body fat. A high BMI is associated with an increased risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes in adults.

BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat for most people. However, it has limitations. For example, BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or people with low muscle mass.

  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit.
