The scales do not necessarily tell you the true story of your weight. They do not indicate the distribution of your fat storage onto the abdomen and central region of your body. When it comes to your health it isn't only a matter of what you weigh but where you are storing the excess fat cells.
To establish whether your weight is placing your health at risk you can do a risk assessment test. Use the on-line calculator below to take the test.
