A member asked:

I am 16 and i have red thread like veins on my legs and arms, doctors have told me it is because i am underweight my bmi is 15.2 and so i have less fat and tissue to hide the veins, is this true?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

BMI 15.2: Your doctor is correct. BMI of 15.2 is quite low unless your height is also low. If your height is OK a consult with a nurse would be very helpful so that your weight will increase. Please let me know how things go.
