Obesity is an extremely common health problem, and it can lead to a host of other, more serious problems, such as heart disease or diabetes. As far too many people have discovered, losing excess weight is not easy. Don’t give up hope just yet. Drastic weight loss treatment at Innovative Medicine may be able to help.
When is Someone Overweight?
Doctors often use waist size and/or the body mass index (BMI) to determine if someone is overweight. As a rule of thumb, a woman should not have a waist circumference any greater than 35 inches, and a man’s waist should not be any more than 40 inches.
A BMI is calculated from the patient’s height and weight. Ideally, the BMI should be between 18.5 and 24.9. Anything below 18.5 is underweight, while anything above 24.9 is overweight. A BMI that is 30 or over is considered obese. A BMI of 40 or above is considered morbidly obese.
