In brief: Depends

However it is very important that your friend sees her doctor. Your friend could have thyroid or other issues.
A full exam and blood tests are indicated.

In brief: BMI 25

The ideal weight for anyone would be the weight at which you are the most healthy and live the longest.
The index we use to determine the ideal way for any given person is called a body mass index abbreviated bmi. This uses your height and weight to calculate an index. The bmi should be, ideally, 25. This is associated with the best ten-year survival: http://www.Phvg.Org/bmi.Html.
