One thought on “Are there any issues with using BMI?

    The BMI can also underestimate body fat in people who have lost muscle mass, which include a few older people. BMI gives a good estimate of total body fat for most people, but it doesn’t work well for everybody. Doctors and nurses often use BMI to help find out if a fewone might have a weight problem. For example, bodybuilders or other very muscular people can have a high BMI because of their muscle mass, even though they’re not necessarily overweight.
