Calculators:
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a widely-used diagnostic tool for identifying weight problems. Overweight and obese individuals are at risk for a variety of medical conditions, and dramatic weight gain or loss can lead to stretch mark eruptions. To prevent unsightly stretch marks, it’s important to keep your BMI in the normal range. Wondering if you’re at a healthy weight? Enter your height and weight below, and Scars1’s unique Advanced BMI calculator will let you know the estimated impact of your present body weight and shape upon your overall health. In addition, the calculator can determine your Waist to Hip Ratio (WHR), which represents weight distribution (body shape). Recent studies* indicate that the WHR is as good as, or better than, the BMI as an indicator for health risk.
