What can your BMI tell you?

Your BMI may not be the most reliable measure of health, as it is not the best indicator of body fatness. For instance, it may not be able to differentiate between an athlete and a sedentary individual of similar height and weight, despite the latter carrying significantly higher amounts of fat.

For a better indicator of your health, please do consider our health screening packages which can give you better indicators of your body fat analysis, and also help you identify potential abnormalities early.

Early detection allows early treatment and lifestyle adjustments, which often leads to better outcomes for individuals.
