Obesity means having too much fat, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, or body water. Both terms mean that a person’s weight is more than what’s considered healthy for his/her height.
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on the health of the person. It leads to a reduction in life expectancy and increasing health problems.
Who is Obese?
In western countries, people are considered obese when their body mass index, a measurement obtained by dividing a person’s weight by the square of a person’s height, exceeds 30 kg/m square, with the range of 25-30 kg/m square is defined as overweight. Some East-Asian countries use stricter criteria.
Diseases due to Obesity
Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart diseases, 2 types of diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.
Reason for Obesity
Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food energy intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medication, or psychiatric treatment.
Evidence to support the view that some obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is limited. On average, obese people have greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.
