How to know if you are overweight or obese?

Overweight or obese?

A person who is overweight or obese is someone whose body fat is above the ideal for his or her height. Being overweight or obese is considered as a bad health condition because you could be in danger of getting certain diseases that could cause you a more severe condition in the future.

Some people are conscious of their weight problems but some others aren’t sure if their weight could affect their health and quality of life.

BMI measurement

The best method to determine if you are overweight or obese is the Body Mass Index, which is an indicator that measures body fat content in relation to height and weight that applies both men and women.

You can measure your BMI by going to our BMI Calculator here

There are several factors that cause overweight or obesity: lifestyle, genetics, and even medications might take part on this condition.

If you already detected that you have a health problem, you should consult your doctor so he can suggest the best treatment.

We know that is not easy to lose weight and change a lot of habits in your life, but the risk of having other serious diseases will always be higher when you are overweight or obese, the right treatment could change your life forever and give you an opportunity to live healthier for more years.

Gastric or bariatric surgery is recommended for those patients who have changed their habits, have gone through rigorous diets and exercise and still haven’t resolved their problems, they don’t seem to be improving on their condition.

You might be a good candidate for a bariatric surgery if your BMI is above 30, so please feel free to use the BMI calculator to see which is your BMI, if you have questions or doubts about a bariatric procedure request a call from our Coordinator here.
