Depends on height: Hi. BMI is a measure of body habitus that is calculated using your height and weight. It does not take age (in adults) into account. So 20 years old doesn't matter. Height, however, is indispensable in calculating BMI. Therefore, in the absence of critically important information, we have no way to tell you what an average BMI for (20 yo) women is. Good luck! ...Read more
BMI: Bmi is calculated weight to height. Ideal and high risk are standardized for adult ideal is18.5 to 25, 25 to 30 is overweight and 30 plus is considered obese.

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method
Slow and consistent: Losing 6 kg (~13 lb) over a one year period of time is reasonable. That is only a decrease of about 3500 calories a month or a little over a 100 calories a day. Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. ...Read more

I am a 22 year old male with a BMI of 20.1 yet I have a blood pressure reading of 141/82. Is this safe? Can I improve it or will it get worse with age
Not quite normal:
Diet, exercise and salt restriction will help drop your systolic BP (top number) ideally less than 130-139...; however, the diastolic BP of 82 is fine.
I suggest keeping a BP journal. Buy a reliable digitial BP machine and check your pressure 3 times/day: A.M., noon and PM. Average out your daily #s and bring to your PCP. BMI is perfect. ...Read more

I am one of two sets of fraternal twins in family of 5 chiildren. ...Read more
My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasn't concerned. I'm 38 year old female BMI 19.5 I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?
NO: Low voltage on an EKG usually is caused by placement of the leads. This usually does happen from the limb leads because they are placed farther than the precordial leads. Also, they can be placed at different locations. For example more toward your ankle on one EKG versus closer or at your knee on another. ...Read more
Interesting question: In theory 220- age is maximum heart rate, but I have seen some people exceed this formula, the real question is target heart rate- probably 60-70% of this according to exercise physiology - about 112 for you. If you run a bit higher comfortably, don't worry. As you excercise more your heart rate may drop as you get more fit. Still, you don't have to go that hard to get benefits. Be well! ...Read more

What is the normal BMI for a 14 year old girl. My daughters BMI is 32.1 and she is quite skinny. This doesn't sound right to me.

Abnormal OGTT: Hi. Those results are abnormal, although there are no standard diagnostic criteria for 70 and 90 minutes. I trust they did a 120 minute for which there ARE diagnostic criteria. You're young, thin, & have no family history of type 2. You're probably in the process of developing type 1. What symptoms led your doc to do the OGTT? Have you lost weight? Are you peeing all night long? Follow up with doc ...Read more
