Obesity

Obesity indicates that a person has more body fat than is healthy. With too much body fat, the risk of certain health problems may increase, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, stroke, and sleep apnea. Some people who are obese dislike their bodies and experience prejudice or mistreatment by others because of their weight. Obesity is usually a long-term disease with a strong genetic basis, running in families. It is also influenced by culture, environment, personal behavior, the use of certain medications, and medical problems.

Criteria

Body Mass Index (BMI), which measures weight in relation to height, is the best measure of obesity. BMI of 30 or more in adults indicates obesity. BMI between 25 and 30 in adults indicates overweight.

Warning Signs

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, with BMI of 25 or higher raising concerns
  • History of repeated dieting and regaining of weight
  • Continued weight increases over long periods of time
  • Family history of obesity
  • Waist-to-hip ratio indicating fat distribution that increases risk of health problems
  • Blood test results indicating obesity-related medical concerns, such as elevated cholesterol or triglycerides
