Story Behind the Curve

The BMI is one way to tell whether you are at a normal weight, are overweight, or have obesity. It measures your weight in relation to your height and provides a score to help place you in a category:

  • normal weight: BMI of 18.5 to 24.9
  • overweight: BMI of 25 to 29.9
  • obesity: BMI of 30 or higher

More than 87% of adults with Diabetes are overweight or obese. It isn't clear why people who are overweight are more likely to develop this disease.
