At high altitudes, it is common to experience acute mountain sickness (AMS). Approximately three-quarters of individuals at elevations above 3,000 metres can expect to encounter mild symptoms. The occurrence of altitude sickness depends on various factors, including elevation, rate of ascent, and individual susceptibility. During the normal process of acclimatisation, many people may experience mild symptoms of altitude sickness. It is important to understand that the mild discomfort accompanying this adaptation is considered normal and acceptable.

A BMI (Body Mass Index) calculator is a tool used to estimate an individual's body fatness based on their height and weight. It provides a numerical value that indicates whether a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. The BMI calculation is based on the principle that a person's weight should be proportionate to their height. To use a BMI calculator, you input your weight and height, and the calculator calculates your BMI by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in metres. The resulting BMI value is then compared to standard ranges to determine the person's weight category. While BMI is a useful screening tool, it doesn't directly measure body fat percentage or consider factors such as muscle mass or distribution of fat. It serves as a starting point for assessing an individual's weight status and can be a helpful tool in monitoring overall health and weight management.
