Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Your BMI is 44. Body Mass Index(BMI) is an index of body weight and height which indicates whether you are overweight/underweight.
The normal range is 19-25. You are Morbidly Obese.
Tooth abscess needs to be cleaned and you need systemic antibiotics.
Your urine report indicates an inflammation in urinary tract. It can be a UTI or a stone.
You should get a CBC, Urine routine routine and culture and an ultrasound of abdomen. Prior to these investigations you should ensure that you are well hydrated for a day or two, so that to avoid artifacts.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
