Mr. Trigger, a 29-year-old male, and his healthy 32-year-old wife have been unable to conceive after two years of unprotected intercourse. Results of medical tests led Mr. Trigger to be diagnosed with male-factor infertility due to low sperm production. No other health problems were identified.

Results of the nutritional assessment revealed that Mr. Trigger was physically inactive and consumed an average of 145 calories more per day than recommended based on his weight, height, and physical activity level. Results of assessments of Mr. Trigger’s dietary and supplement intake; nutrition-focused physical findings;

What is Mr. Trigger’s BMI?

To explain: BMI of Person T.

Introduction: Body mass index (BMI) is obtained by dividing weight (in kg) by square of height (in m). If BMIs is greater than 18.5, it is considered underweight, while people with a BMI level of 18.5-24.9 is normal weight, 25-29.9 overweight, and people with BMIs 30 and higher is considered under obesity.
