I don't know for sure what this means. 

If you mean that you intend to treat BMI as if it were normal, even though you know that is wrong, then I suggest at some point you need to evaluate the effects of that incorrect assumption. 

I don't work in this field, but like virtually everybody else I know what BMI is. I wouldn't want to treat BMI as normal unless there was overwhelming evidence that that was an accurate assumption.

BMI is not perfectly normally distributed but it smeems to be normally
