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.

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 that 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.)

BMI

You may be a good candidate for surgery if:

  • You are 45 kg 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
