One of the most important pieces of health information for chronic condition patients to be cautious of is one’s Body Mass Index (BMI). The formula to determine BMI is: BMI = kg/m2.
According to a study conducted by BMC Public Health and published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, prevalence of chronic disease generally increased with increasing BMI1. It is crucial for chronic condition patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle, ensuring that complications from their condition are minimized. With so many other health info considerations to track, patients shouldn’t need to go through the trouble of calculating their BMI on a daily basis.
