Know Your Numbers! Week - BMI


More than half of all UK adults (63%) are classed as being overweight or obese - over 35 million people. Obesity is a major cause of a number of major health problems including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancers, but it is also treatable if managed correctly.

Offering a Weight Management Service enables your pharmacy to support customers with obesity wanting to lose weight and where diet and exercise changes alone have not been successful.

Being aware of your BMI figure is the first step to determining what steps need to be made in order to address any health-related issues regarding weight. As part of Know Your Numbers Week we are encouraging customers to measure and monitor their BMI numbers and to engage in physical exercise throughout the week to boost fitness levels.
