**Note: BMI charts, just like height/weight charts can be misleading. Depending on a person's body type and muscle
density. These are approximations. If you a leading a healthy lifestyle, exercising and eating a well-balanced menu, then
you should not worry if you are in the high range on the chart. It is very common for adolescents to have lower BMI's. If
you are very small, living a healthy lifestyle and your body is functioning well, then you should not worry. Consult your
doctor if you have concerns. He will use other assessments to determine whether or not you are in a healthy weight
range and BMI. Visit http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/ for more information.
