Hello. Could you please explain bmi, I am not familiar with the term. Appreciated pledge
BMI is body mass index. I'm assuming this is a question regarding a medication for weight loss as some require you to have a specific BMI. Could you let me know what medication and I will let you know what BMI and correct me if I assumed incorrectly. Looking forward to hearing from you!
I apologize, I see the medication you referred to. It's meant for weight loss in the "obese patient", which is a BMI 30 or above but I have seen these types of drugs being prescribed with a BMI of 27 or greater. Just so you know in case you were wondering, normal BMI is 18.9-24.9, overweight 25-29.9, obese 30 and above. Sorry I missed the pill the first time around. Best of luck!
