BMI is a number that describes the type of weight that you have. People with a normal weight have a lower BMI. An overweight or obese person has a higher BMI. Caregivers can calculate (find out) your BMI using your height and weight. Your BMI number will help caregivers decide whether or not you are someone who can have weight loss surgery. BMI = weight (kg) ÷ height (m2), in other words, weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared.
