BVI IS THE NEW BMI

Diabetic Living - - Your Health -

Lis­ten out for the term Body Vol­ume Indi­ca­tor (BVI) be­cause your health team may start us­ing it. BVI is a ra­tio of your body’s to­tal vol­ume and your ab­dom­i­nal vol­ume. It is more ac­cu­rate than BMI (based on height and weight) at es­ti­mat­ing how weight is spread around the body. Both BVI and BMI can in­di­cate your risk of ill­nesses in­clud­ing heart dis­ease and di­a­betes.
