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:
