Calculate Bmi Z Score
BMI charts: BMI charts are very good for measuring body mass index - (BMI). The BMI range should be 20-25 but a bit higher might be OK. The most informative way is to get your weight without clothing on (at home of course). and get your height measured without shoes off. Of course your BMI will be lower if you have your height measured wearing high heels. Not a good idea! ...Read more
Body mass index (BMI) is a measurement based on a person's height and weight, to decide if a person is too heavy or too light for his height. The index is a number that can be in the underweight range, normal range, overweight range, or obese range. Children use different number ranges than adults do, ...Read more
Weight:height.: The BMI is simply your weight with respect to your height - an overly simplistic and thereby essentially flawed assessment of your health. It's a bit better when used in combination with body fat measurement. That being said, a high BMI might be associated with diabetes and heart disease amongst other health conditions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My lipid panel says Chol 251, Trig 180, dHDL 38, cLDL 177, CRF 6.61. How is that CRF calculated? It seems twice the normal range of 0.0-3.00.
Lipid panel: If "CRF" is a typo for "CRP", as in hs-CRP, then your CRP is too high, perhaps indicative of your low HDL and high LDL/triglycerides. You need to improve your lipid profile, and with these numbers you'd likely need diet/exercise/medication/weight loss if overweight. With improvements in your lipids, the CRP should come down. The CRP is measures, not calculated, and it suggests risk to the heart ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
24: These numbers were actually never intended for individuals, but as a measure for populations. Your best weight is what looks and feels right to you and lets you take part effectively in your favorite sport. As a predictor of health, the much-sought-after "appropriate bmi" of 18-25 has been a disappointment. It's much more important simply to stay physically fit. Best wishes. ...Read more

My fathers Lipid Panel!
Total cholest: 243, Triglycerides: 257, HDL: 44, VLDL: 51, LDL: 148, LDL/HDL ratio: 3.4. Calcium score was a 1. Is this bad?
Hyperlipidemia: Bad is a part of a formula or an angle. It depends on your dad's pmhx, MI, Cardiovascular Risk factors etc. It is likely that his LDL should be lower as well as Triglycerides. I would assume he is currently on a Statin or will be placed on one in addition to lifestyle modification. ...Read more
