Ask Dr. Gott 2/29

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a lady in her 90th year and hope you can answer a pertinent question. Until my 70s, I was a respectable 5 feet 6 inches. Now I am 1-1/2 inches shorter. When checking height charts for healthy weight, which height do I use? At 150 pounds, I am below the BMI of 25 if the higher height is used. I am just above the 25 mark if the lower height is used. I know that life is not fair, but should I be considered overweight at 90 when I was OK at 70?
