General Morbid Obesity Treatment
Obesity is a term used to describe body weight that is much greater than what is considered healthy. Anyone who is more than 100 pounds overweight or who has a BMI greater than 40 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese.
Weight-loss surgery may be an option if you are very obese and have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise. However, these surgeries are not a "quick fix" for obesity. You must still be committed to diet and exercise after the surgery.
Morbid obesity is a serious health condition that can interfere with basic physical functions such as breathing or walking. Those who are morbidly obese are at greater risk for illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, gallstones, osteoarthritis, heart disease, cancer.
Obesity can be caused by genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.
