Overview

Obesity, an abnormal accumulation of body fat, is a complex endocrine disorder increasingly prevalent in children and adults. Being obese increases the risk of developing medical conditions like Arthritis, Breathing Problems, Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Gallstones, Liver Disease, Paralysis, Reproductive Problems (in women) among many others. The lifespan of those suffering from severe obesity (Body Mass Index = 40) is reduced by as much as 20 years in men and by about 5 years in women. Obesity adversely affects the quality of life and may even result in death or disability.


 


When body weight in relation to height is 20% or more over the stipulated weight an individual is Obese. Genetic factors, family lifestyle, inactivity, unhealthy diet, medical problems, certain medications, socio-economic issues, aging, smoking, lack of sleep and pregnancy cause Obesity. Achieving moderate weight loss can improve or prevent health problems associated with Obesity. The Weight Loss Clinic at Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute delivers the perfect weight loss solution based on individual needs and addresses health risks associated with Obesity.
