Our BMI calculator measures your body mass index (BMI). This is a measurement based on height and weight. It indicates if you are under or over your ideal weight. Acid reflux tends to worsen as we get heavier, with the extra pounds putting pressure on the lower esophagus allowing more to reflux.
If you are overweight, don't let this calculator frustrate you. If the BMI chart seems unrealistic or unattainable for you, take small steps and do what you can -- for some of us even losing a few pounds can help reduce GERD symptoms.
