In brief: Maybe, maybe not

Healthtap doctors are american physicians, so we talk in pounds and ounces.
I'm guessing a stone is 14 pounds, so 12 stone 6 = 174 pounds? That might be ok, depending on whether a person is male, female, has lots of muscle, has little muscle, etc... The question of "healthiness" depends on other conditions (a person with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, etc... Would do better being lighter).
