Weight loss calculator (BMI)

Your BMI Is:
A BMI of less than 18.5 indicates being underweight. It may be caused by malnutrition, an eating disorder, or another health issue.
People who have a BMI from 18.5 to 25 are considered to have a normal and healthy weight.
Earlier defined as “overweight”. A BMI in this range poses a risk of developing obesity.
People with a BMI of 30 to 34.9 are considered to have mild obesity (class I) and abnormal accumulation of fat that can pose various health risks.
A BMI of 35 to 39.9 indicates moderate obesity (class II), which is detrimental to one’s health and can lead to high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and heart problems.
People with a BMI of 40 and higher are considered to have morbid or severe obesity (class III), which significantly increases the risk of developing obesity-related diseases.

Start with weight loss assessment

Before you proceed with your treatment, you will go through one or several weight loss evaluations:

Answering a weight loss assessment questionnaire

You may be asked to fill out a weight loss assessment form. It typically covers your weight loss goals and preferences.

Reviewing your past medical history

You will be asked about allergies, medicines and supplements you take, and the details of your weight loss history. If medications are considered, you’ll be asked whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding because some weight loss meds are not suitable in such cases.

Evaluating physical health

Some medical ailments (thyroid disorder, cardiovascular disease, kidney problems, etc.) can cause weight gain. You might be recommended to take extra tests to understand if you have physical issues related to weight fluctuations.

Measuring BMI

BMI calculation is one of the standard weight loss assessment tools. It is a body mass index that is determined based on your height and weight. Its measurement helps in developing a treatment plan or recommendations.

Analyzing your diet and activity level

You will be asked about your diet, routines, and habits to help the doctor develop an effective strategy for you. Whether you get weight loss pills prescribed or not, a healthy diet and proper activity level are recommended.

Examining mental

Stress, insomnia, and depression may cause weight gain and should be treated along with the weight loss process. Eating disorders must be ruled out too, as they require different treatments, not limited to weight
loss itself.

If your weight loss plan was created by a certified doctor who assessed your symptoms, health history, and preferences, you can be sure to get a safe strategy. Still, weight loss pills may cause side effects in any patient. You should precisely stick to the recommendations set by your doctor to avoid or reduce such adverse effects. Neither make your diet stricter without approval nor increase your activity level suddenly to prevent the development of eating disorders or physical issues.

Sudden weight loss can be a consequence of physical ailments. To identify the most probable cause, these tests can be recommended:

  • A complete blood count
  • Thyroid panel
  • Kidney and liver function tests
  • Electrolyte panel
  • Inflammation tests
  • Blood sugar test


On the other hand, weight fluctuations can also be caused by mental health problems. At MEDvidi, you can be assessed for depression, anxiety, stress, and other conditions.

You can calculate your normal weight using one of the most common weight loss diagnostic tests—BMI calculation (body mass index). Normally, a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy. Nevertheless, normal weight should be determined individually, considering not just one’s height but also several other factors including age, the amount of fat and muscle mass in the body, and health specifics.

For adults, BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered to indicate a normal or healthy weight. A BMI of less than 18.5 means underweight, while a BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 means overweight. A BMI of 30.0 and higher is in the obese range.

A number of factors, including your weight, adherence to the recommended regimen, and personal response to the medicine, might affect how long it takes to lose weight with weight-loss medication. It’s critical to maintain reasonable expectations and recognize that losing weight is a gradual process.

Weight loss programs held through telemedicine incorporate medical knowledge and modern technologies. Online weight management plans can include expert behavioral assistance, prescription management, and continual monitoring. Success in weight loss, however, is dependent on each person’s unique circumstances, level of commitment, and willingness to make long-term lifestyle modifications and adjustments.

If people resume their old, unhealthy habits, weight gain may reappear once treatment ends. Adopting new habits, like maintaining a balanced diet and exercising regularly, are necessary for long-term weight loss. Permanent adjustments that promote weight maintenance are the major objective.

MEDvidi weight loss program is for anyone wishing to reduce body weight and improve their health. Our program is created for people who are obese or overweight, which is typically indicated by a body mass index (BMI) above a specific limit. Taking part in a weight loss program may be suitable for people who have weight-related health issues, including diabetes or high blood pressure.

Weight loss pills have different mechanisms of action, side effects, and other factors and must be chosen individually. The same medication can work differently for different patients. Your doctor will examine your health history and the medication’s contraindications and interactions before prescribing you weight loss meds.

To receive a weight loss prescription*, one has to be diagnosed with obesity or as overweight by a certified doctor. Having a BMI higher than 30 (or higher than 27 and having related conditions) is a common requirement. The evaluation of your health history and determining the necessity of this type of medication is also needed.

Whether weight loss medications are the best way to lose weight depends on various factors, including your overall health and medical history. Weight loss medications can be effective for some individuals, but they are not suitable or necessary for everyone.

The period of taking weight loss meds depends on a particular drug. While some weight loss drugs are meant to be taken temporarily, others can be taken for extended periods. Your progress, current health, and any potential side effects will all be taken into account by your healthcare provider when determining the right duration of treatment.

Consult your healthcare provider to ascertain whether weight-loss medication is the best option for you. Your medical history, present health condition, weight loss objectives, and the potential dangers and advantages of the medicine will all be considered. They might take into account things like BMI, obesity-related health issues, and prior weight loss attempts.

To buy weight loss pills online, you need to have a valid prescription from a healthcare provider. Put your safety first and confirm that the medicines you buy are legal and the pharmacy is authorized to sell them. Steer clear of buying diet medications from unreliable websites or without a prescription.
