    Hi everyone,
    To save me going through all the paperwork - I know there is a recommendation that people over a certain BMI have to get the medical form signed by their doctor, even if they are otherwise healthy. Can someone tell me what it is please??? I think it's 40 ????
    thanks, Ann

    They must have the form signed if BMI is over 40. If it's over 30 it's still recommended especially if they haven't seen their doc in a while.
