Anyone who is overweight should try to avoid gaining additional weight. Additionally, if you are overweight with other risk factors (such as high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high blood pressure), you should try to lose weight. Even a small weight loss (just 10% of your current weight) may help lower the risk of disease. Talk with your doctor and dietician to determine appropriate ways to lose weight.

  • overweight if they have a BMI over the 95th percentile for their age
  • at risk of becoming overweight if they have a BMI between the 85th and 95th percentile for their age
  • underweight if they have a BMI under the 5th percentile for their age
  • and have a healthy weight if they have a BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile.
