What are common health consequences of overweight?

Raised BMI is a major risk factor for noncommunicable diseases such as:

cardiovascular diseases (mainly heart disease and stroke), which were the leading cause of death in 2012;
diabetes;
musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis – a highly disabling degenerative disease of the joints);
some cancers (including endometrial, breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and colon).
The risk for this type of non-communicable disease would rise, which further increases the BMI unfortunately.

What is a healthy BMI?

For most adults, an ideal BMI is in the 18.5-24.9 range. If your BMI is higher than 25, you weigh more than is ideal for your height.

BMI Weight range
Below 18.5 Underweight range
18.5 – 24.9 Healthy weight range
25 – 29.9 Overweight range
30 – 39.9 Obese range

To work out your BMI:
Divide your weight in kilograms (kg) by your height in meters (m), then divide your answer by your height again to get your BMI For example, if you weigh 70kg and you are 1.75m tall, divide 70 by 1.75. The answer is 40. Then divide 40 by 1.75, which gives 22.9, which is your BMI.
