What is Obesity?
Obesity is a medical condition characterized by an excess accumulation of body fat to the extent that it may have a negative impact on health. It is typically measured using the body mass index (BMI), which is a ratio of a person’s weight to their height. A BMI of 30 or higher is generally considered indicative of obesity.
Obesity can result from a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Factors that contribute to obesity include poor dietary habits, lack of physical activity, genetics, hormonal imbalances, and certain medical conditions. Consuming more calories than the body needs over an extended period can lead to the storage of excess calories as fat.
Obesity is associated with various health risks and conditions, including but not limited to:
- Type 2 diabetes: Obesity is a significant risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes.
2. Cardiovascular diseases: Obesity is linked to conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.
3. Respiratory issues: Obese individuals may experience difficulties with breathing and may be at an increased risk of conditions like sleep apnea.
4. Joint problems: Excess weight can put strain on joints, leading to conditions such as osteoarthritis.
5. Metabolic syndrome: Obesity is often associated with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
6. Mental health issues: Obesity can be associated with mental health challenges, including depression and low self-esteem.
Management of obesity typically involves lifestyle changes such as adopting a healthier diet, increasing physical activity, and, in some cases, medical interventions or surgery. Prevention strategies often focus on promoting a balanced diet, regular physical activity, and healthy lifestyle habits from a young age.
