You can calculate your BMI by taking you weight in kilograms and dividing it by your height in meters squared. It's not perfect, but in general you want this ratio to be under 25. Hope this helps.

There is absence of chromosomal 15 in me. Is my offspring will be normal? If not then tell me thee abnormality ratio. Plz please

The lowest dose generally given is 25mg/day. ...Read more
