Weight Management Research

At Lilly, we want to help people living with excess weight access care that is based on research. The first step is to help the public to see obesity as a long-term disease rather than a lifestyle choice. By taking part in a clinical research study focused on chronic weight management, you can help to make a difference. Click here to find a trial.

About Our Research

Lilly was founded in 1876 with the goal of making new high-quality medicines for the people that need them. The company’s aim is the same today! We work with people who take our medicines, healthcare workers who prescribe our medicines, our employees who make our medicines, and potential patients and caregivers in communities around the world.

Weight Management Research Areas

In many clinical trials we assess the impact an investigational medicine might have on other conditions linked to excess weight. Click on the conditions below to find out more. Here you can view weight management clinical trials.

BMI Calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat that is calculated using your height and weight. In adults, it is used as a screening tool to check if your weight falls into one of the following groups when compared to your height: underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese. Use the calculator to find out what your BMI is. This BMI calculator is for adults aged 20 years and over.


This BMI calculator is a screening tool used for educational purposes only and by itself it is not intended to diagnose illness or disease. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, and you can talk to your healthcare provider for more information about your weight status. Because BMI is based on weight and height, it is only an indicator of body fatness, it doesn’t consider things like how much muscle you have. People with the same BMI may have different amounts of body fat.

For additional information, read our What is BMI? blog.
