OBESITY

Morbid obesity, or in other words, body weight fatally above normal limits implies the fat component of body above 30% in women and 25% in men. The more scientific definition is the body mass index (BMI), which is expressed by the ratio of the weight in kilograms to the square of the height in meters. If BMI is above 30 kg/m2, this person is deemed obese, while a BMI score above 35 kg/m2 and above 40 kg/m2 points to severe obesity that should be managed and morbid (fatal) obesity, respectively.

CONDITIONS CAUSED BY OBESITY

Obesity stands out as a factor that triggers or progresses many conditions. Type II diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol disorders, cardiovascular occlusions, heart attack, gastric reflux, asthma, fatty liver and the resultant liver failure, gout, degenerative joint diseases (arthritis), migraine, phlebitis (venous inflammation), polycystic ovary syndrome and menstrual irregularities are more common in obese individuals. Moreover, it is known that the risk for cancers of the breast, uterus, colon, esophagus, pancreas, kidney and prostate increases with obesity. The majority of obesity-related conditions recover when obesity is treated, or in other words, when healthy body weight is restored.

TREATMENT METHODS

Although short-term results can be rarely achieved in some patients with diet, exercise, herbal treatments and drug therapies as well as acupuncture and similar alternative treatments, sound results usually fail or the gains cannot be maintained for a long time.

Patients with body mass index above 40 kg/m2 and people with body mass index above 35 kg/m2 and obesity-related diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease or sleep apnea, can also undergo obesity surgery.

Metabolic surgery can also be considered for patients with body mass index between 30 and 35 kg/m2 who have type II diabetes that cannot be controlled by drugs and this operation can help selected patients with diabetes mellitus.
