Height and Weight Chart

Most medical practitioners consider the height-weight chart to measure good health in adults. In children, the height-weight chart holds greater importance as it is a benchmark for their overall development. 

As per health experts, the three primary aspects that impact your health as you grow older are -

  1. Height 

  2. Weight

  3. Gender

These parameters are correlated using the height and weight chart. In simple terms, it helps you and your doctor understand whether your height and weight are in proportion and that it mirrors your current state of health.

Depending on your gender, whether you are a man or woman, the height-weight chart will differ. This is because men and women have different biological and physiological alignments. Therefore, they have varying muscle and mass compositions in their body.

Interpretation of the Height and Weight Chart

Before you take a look at the height weight chart for females and males, you should know how to interpret the weight categories in them. Fortunately, the categories are quite self-explanatory:

  • Average weight

It means the individual is well within the defined health range.

  • Underweight

If the weight of a person is below the average weight range, it means the individual is underweight. Consult a medical expert and find a reason and remedy for the same.

  • Overweight

It means the individual is above the defined normal weight range. In other words, the person has a higher weight than they ideally should.

A height and weight chart can help you evaluate the correlation between the two parameters. Now, let us take a look at the male and female height weight chart (in kg).
