Body Adiposity Index Calculator (BAI)

Adiposity in its literal meaning means “severely over-weight”. The term “adipose” finds its origin from the Latin root word ‘adip’ which means fat. Thus adiposity means obesity.

Difference between Adiposity and Obesity

Both adiposity and obesity are a measure of excess fat present in a human body. However, there exists a minor difference in their method of estimation.

Importance of Adiposity Index

Adiposity Index is a direct sign of an unhealthy lifestyle. Abnormal ranges of adiposity indicate the possibility of the occurrence of many diseases.

Ranges of Adiposity w.r.t BMI

We know that Body Mass Index is calculated by dividing a person’s body weight with their height squared.

The following table shows the relation between BMI and Adiposity stages

Overweight 25-29.9
Adiposity stage I 30-34.9
Adiposity stage II 35-39.9
