What is the ratio between height and weight of a healthy woman?

What is the ratio between height and weight of a healthy woman?

BMI: Body mass index...Obesity is one thing that is important...But the ratio is irrelevant if the woman is healthy and active. There really are people with big bones and small bones and their height /weight ratios will be very different...The bmi ratio is a number that can let one know if they are overweight or obese. It works most of the time unless u r a bodybuilder. Then it is wrong.

120-150 pounds: See the weight chart. Anywhere between 120 (low end) and 150 (high end) are healthy weights for your height. Just losing 10 pounds (5% of your body weight) will have a very positive affect on your long term health. Start with a smaller goal and keep going till you get there. Add in physical activity for added health bonus!

What is the normal or healthy weight/bmi for a woman of 24yrs & Height of 5'4?

What is the normal or healthy weight/bmi for a woman of 24yrs & Height of 5'4?

About 120 lbs: One easy equation for weight is to be 100 lbs for 5 feet and then add about 5 lbs per inch. So for 5'4'' an average weight would be 120 lbs plus or minus about 10 lbs. If you are severely overweight you should not expect to get down to that weight though.

Hi there! I am 43 years old (Woman) Height=1.82cm Weight=120.5 kg IGF-1=219.0 Is it normal?

Hi there! I am 43 years old (Woman) Height=1.82cm Weight=120.5 kg IGF-1=219.0 Is it normal?

No GH excess: Hi. In our lab, that IGF-1 would be within normal limits for a 43 yo woman, so we have no evidence of growth hormone excess. However, the BMI is 36.4, diagnostic of obesity. The height is stated as "1.82 cm", but I strongly suspect you mean 1.82 m or 182 cm. This is taller than the average woman, but the IGF-1 suggests no GH excess.

If a woman of short stature is overweight or obese do you think the excess weight will cause them to appear shorter in height?

If a woman of short stature is overweight or obese do you think the excess weight will cause them to appear shorter in height?

Why?: It is perception which is how one person looks at it. And that is just their opinion. Obese or thin ones height is ones height... And whether they appear short or not really should not make any difference. Carry yourself as tall and that is what comes through!

Laparotomy healing: You are 46 and had a laparotomy not laparoscopy. The incision needs 4-6 weeks to heal. The suture used will last a while then your own healing is responsible. Don't smoke eat healthy and exercise by walking. Your will have a follow up with your surgeon and no intercourse until you are healed.
