BMI/Ein deutsches Wort?

When Germans talk in German about Body Mass Index, they always pronounce it Mahss, like the German word for measure or litre of beer. I have found this odd, but it occurred to me that they aren’t actually saying the English word (mass like German Masse), but have converted it into a new German term with a slightly different origin.
