About Obesity

What is Obesity ?

Though we all use the terms "fat" and "obese" casually in conversation, there is a medical definition of the condition and yes, obesity is considered a health "condition."
"Obesity" specifically refers to an excessive amount of body fat. "Overweight" refers to an    excessive amount of body weight that includes muscle, bone, fat, and water. Obesity is a state in which there is a generalised accumulation of excess fat in the body. Stages of overweight are medically defined by body mass index (BMI).BMI of 25 to30
 is clinically classified as overweight.  


What is Morbid or Severve Obesity ?

A person is considered "obese" when he or she weights 20 percent or more than his or her ideal body weight. At that point, the person's weight poses a real health risk. Obesity becomes "morbid" when it significantly increases the risk of one or more obesity-related health conditions or serious diseases (also known as co-morbidities). Morbid obesity sometimes called "clinically severe obesity" is defined as being 100 lbs. or  more (40 kg or more ) over  ideal body weight or having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or higher.Also, a patient with BMI of 35 of greater with one or more obesity related diseases is also classified as morbidly obese. So Morbid obesity is a serious health hazard leading to significant physical disability or even death.

Severve Obesity

What causes Obesity ?

Obesity is due to an individual taking in more calories than they burn over an extended period of time. These “extra” calories are stored as fat. Severve obesity is most likely a result of a combination of genetic, psychosocial, environmental, social and cultural influences resulting in the complex disorder of both appetite regulation and energy metabolism.

Causes Obesity

What are the social effects of Obesity ?

Emotional suffering may be one of the most painful parts of obesity. Individuals affected  by  obesity  often  face  obstacles  far  beyond  health risks.  The consequences  of  these effects can seriously impact an individual’squality of life.
