HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR BODY MASS INDEX OR BMI
BMI is your weight (in kilograms) over your height squared (in centimeters). Let's calculate, however, using pounds and inches. For instance, the BMI of a person who is 5'3" and weighs 125 lbs is calculated as follows: Multiply the weight in pounds by 0.45 (the metric conversion factor)
How do you calculate ideal body weight?
Males: IBW = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. Females: IBW = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. The IBW and ABW are used to calculate medication dosages when the patient is obese. This formula only applies to persons 60 inches (152 cm) or taller.
