Final Thoughts

Keep in mind that BMI is a screening tool; it is not used to diagnose any medical conditions. Instead, it is used as one method to assess a man's weight and his risk for developing certain medical conditions. To determine if excess weight is a health risk, a physician will perform further assessments. According to recent guidelines, assessment of weight involves using three key measures:
  • BMI
  • Waist circumference
  • Risk factors for diseases and conditions associated with obesity.
