The Body Mass Index should be understood as rough indicator. It should not be considered as a basis for medical and health related decisions.
The composition of body fat and muscle mass is different for each person. This depends on gender, predisposition, ethnicity, fitness level and other factors. That means, for a person with high muscle mass, a slightly higher BMI can be considered normal while the same BMI might be seen as slight overweight for another person.
In case of any doubt it is adviced to consult a doctor or dietitian.
