Hi Guys,

my BMI is 38 , i'm going to medicals next week. Will my medical be rated grade B and will it be referred ? I don't have any problems but my bmi 38.

Anyone else know ? or anyone with high BMI who experienced this themselves ? Was your application delayed ? thanks

I've seen other threads about this, and it does not seem to be a problem. I think if you are under BMI of 40, you should be ok. They may ask for additional tests, but if you don't have any medical issues that are obesity related (e.g. diabetes, etc.), you should be ok.

I had high BMI around 38, i had blood pressure ,cholesterol and prepared for the medical by consulting a doctor for it and got it under control and went for the medical while on medication, did not declare the medication at the medical ...high bmi did not cause any problems..dont worry over it you will be fine....:clap2:

Rather than worrying about your bmi now, start worrying about your bmi after you arrive here! With all the stress and good food I went from 27 to 32! In 3 months. =/

Good luck! =P

you will do fine, dont panic and stay calm, stressing over it might increase your blood pressure, just see a doc a couple of weeks before going for meds, if any medication has to be given your doc will advice to control things and as long as you do not have obesity related issues you will do fine, my BMI was high (35) when i got my meds done, I had delivered a baby a month prior to my meds and it was a C section, it all went fine and i can proudly say, now my BMI is below 30

Hi.

A high value of BMI itself may not be problematic but as we know, overweight or obesity often cause other serious health issues such as cadiovascular diseases, diabetes, and/or arthritis. Therefore they give a pre-caution to potential applicants especially who intend to apply for PR, I believe.

Please read the form 1071i which mentions about 'being overweight'.

Good luck.
