Overweight and Obesity

Obesity is a medical condition characterized by an excess accumulation of body fat to the extent that it can have negative effects on a person’s health. It is typically measured using the body mass index (BMI), which takes into account a person’s weight and height. Obesity is a complex condition influenced by genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.

It poses significant health risks and is associated with various medical problems, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, certain cancers, sleep apnea, and joint problems. The primary causes of obesity are an imbalance between calorie intake and expenditure, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, and genetic predisposition.

The management of obesity typically involves a multifaceted approach, including dietary modifications, increased physical activity, behavior changes, and, in some cases, medication or surgical interventions. It is important to address obesity proactively to improve overall health and reduce the risk of associated complications.
