What Is The Impact If The Body Mass Index Is Below Or Above Normal?
What is the impact if the body mass index is below or above the standard ?.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The normal body mass index for Asians is 18.5 - 22.9 kg / m2. People who have a BMI under 18.5 are said to be underweight, people who have a BMI between 23-26.9 are said to be overweight, while those who have a BMI of more than 27 are called obese.
Underweight can have several health impacts, including:
malnutrition or nutritional deficiencies, including can experience vitamin and mineral deficiencies
decreased immune system
increased risk of complications when performed surgery
menstrual disorders in women
impaired growth and development in children
Overweight and obesity can also cause an increased risk of developing health problems such as:
coronary heart disease, heart attacks and strokes
hypertension and diabetes
diseases of the bile ducts
obstructive breathing during sleep (obstructive sleep apnea)
fertility disorders in both women and men
some types of cancer
several types of psychiatric disorders
increases the risk of pregnancy complications in pregnant women
and many more
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
