What are the dangers of having a low BMI?
marshagal posted:
Does anyone know what can happen if your BMI is too low? I am naturally low weight and carried a BMI of around 18-18.4. Lately though I have dipped down to 17 due to high caloric needs that I am not maintaining. I know I should try to gain more weight, but what health risks do I currently have?
