Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator

A Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40 is by definition morbid obesity. Lesser BMI may be morbid if associated by serious co-morbidities.

Body Mass Index standards are:
  • BMI 18.5 to 24.9 Healthy
  • BMI 25 to 29.9 Overweight
  • BMI 30 to 39.9 Obese
  • BMI 40 to 49.9 Morbidly Obese
  • BMI 50 or higher Super Obese

Answering the question "Am I Morbidly Obese?" may give you the courage you need to take the first step towards gastric bypass surgery. Below, we've included a BMI Calculator and an Ideal Body Weight Chart you can use to determine if you are morbidly obese. (However, BMI is only one of many factors we consider when determining whether or not a patient is a good candidate for weight loss surgery.)

You may be a good candidate for surgery if:
  • You are 100 pounds or more over your healthy (ideal) body weight
  • You have a BMI of 40 or more
  • You have a BMI of 35 or more and have serious health problems, such as diabetes or heart disease, that are caused by your excess weight
