The BMI MANAGEMENT chart is intended primarily for use in clinics and hospitals where overweight/obese patients are under treatment. The chart features both +3.5 SDS and +4 SDS levels in order to allow the physician space on which they plot the recovery even of their grossly obese patients. It features the standard BMI centile range (99.6th – 0.4th%), the International Obesity Task Force definitions of overweight/obesity and the centile range which delineates a healthy weight.
The first UK waist circumference charts are features on the reverse.
The physician treating severe under-nutrition and/or eating disorders will also find the chart appropriate in plotting in the recovery of their patients from that state.
