Weight Loss Q & A

What are the health complications of obesity?

Those who are overweight or obese weigh more than what is considered average for their height and body type.

Body fat is measured using body mass index or BMI. A BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 is considered overweight. A BMI of 30.0 and above is considered obese.

Overweight and obese men, women, and children are at higher risk of more than 50 physical and emotional problems including:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Certain cancers
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke

As your BMI increases, your chance of developing severe health problems does too. The good news is you can reduce your risk with a safe and balanced medical weight loss program.
