Is your weight affecting your health?

Have you tried all the diets available with no success?

 

What is obesity?

Obesity is the accumulation of excess fat resulting in a body weight which is more than 25% above what is considered to be normal for your sex and height. The Body mass index (BMI) is the measure most often used to determine whether someone is obese.

 

BMI is a measure of your relative weight to your height and is calculated by taking your weight in Kilogrammes divided by your height in metres squared.

 

You are overweight if your BMI is over 26 and you are obese if your BMI is greater than 30.

 

What are the risks of being morbidly obese?

The more overweight or obese you are the greater the health risks.  Obesity can increase your chances of developing serious conditions such as:

  • Type 2 Diabetes - the risk of type 2 diabetes increases with the degree and duration of obesity, particularly if you have a lot of excess fat around your waist.  Diabetes increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Hypertension (High blood pressure)
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Cancer - obese women have an increased risk of breast and womb cancer while obese men have an increased risk of prostate cancer.  Cancer of the bowel is also increased in obese individuals.
  • Sleep Apnoea (temporary disruption of breathing during sleep.  Often associated with snoring and daytime sleepiness) and other respiratory problems.
  • Osteoarthritis and back pain.
  • Infertility.

By losing weight you can significantly improve your health and reduce your risk of developing these conditions.
