  • What is Obesity?

    Obesity is one of the chronic conditions and is a risk factor for many other chronic conditions.
    Obesity is expanding at an alarming rate as a major health concern throughout the world.
    Obesity, one of the chronic conditions is caused by various factors.
    One or more of the below mentioned factors may cause obesity.

    • Energy Imbalance: Obesity happens gradually if the amount of energy or calories you consume is more than the amount of energy spent on your daily activities.
    • Sedentary Lifestyle: People leading an inactive or sedentary lifestyle are more likely to become obese as they do not burn down the calories they consume.
    • Environmental factors: Lack of safe places for exercising and walking (sidewalks or parks), busy work schedule, eating larger food portions, and junk food are contributing factors to gain weight.
    • Family history: The genes inherited from your parents have an effect the amount of fat stored in your body and your chances of being obese is higher if one or both your parents are obese. Obesity tends to run in families.
    • Disease conditions: Hormonal disorders such as hypothyroidism, Cushing’s syndrome, and polycystic ovarian syndrome may cause weight gain.
    • Medicines: Certain medicines such as corticosteroids, antidepressants and seizure medications are known to decrease the rate of metabolism, increase your appetite and retain excess water in the body leading to weight gain.
    • Emotional factors: Unusual eating habits such as excessive eating when under stress or anger. Overeating will cause weight gain.
    • Age: Aging results in muscle loss in the body which is even more if you are inactive. Muscle loss reduces the calorie consumption and consequently uncontrolled diet may increase the chances of becoming obese.
  • Consequences of Obesity

    If you are obese, severely obese, or morbidly obese, you may have the following health consequences:

    Major health consequences

    • Premature death (shorter life expectancy): Obese people have a 50% to 100% increased risk of premature death
    • Obese people have more risk for heart diseases, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers (breast, uterine, colon), breathing difficulties (e.g., sleep apnea, asthma), arthritis, pregnancy complications, gall bladder problems, urinary incontinence, depression and digestive disorders (gastroesophageal reflux disease)

    Risks to psychological and social well-being

    • Negative self-image
    • Social isolation
    • Discrimination

    Difficulties with day-to-day living

    • Normal tasks become harder when you are obese
    • You tend to tire more quickly and you find yourself short of breath
    • Public transport seats, telephone booths, and cars may be too small for you
    • You may find it difficult to maintain personal hygiene
  • BMI Calculator

    The Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator can be used to calculate your BMI value and weight status while taking your age into consideration. Use the “metric units” tab if you are more comfortable with the international standard metric units. The referenced weight range and calculation formula is listed below.
    Your BMI is a measurement of your body weight based on your height and weight. Although your BMI does not actually “measure” your percentage of body fat, it is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on your height. Due to its ease of measurement and calculation, it is the most widely used diagnostic indicator to identify a person’s optimal weight depending on his height. Your BMI “number” will inform you if you are underweight, of normal weight, overweight, or obese. However, due to the wide variety of body types, the distribution of muscle and bone mass, etc., it is not appropriate to use this as the only or final indication for diagnosis.

  • Treatment Options

    Obesity is a disease, and needs to be treated, else it leads to multiple disorders/ailments, with life threatening repercussions. We offer our patients a treatment with holistic approach.  A surgery is only a part of this life altering journey. There is a lot of counselling, medications, diet plans, post-surgery follow ups that are involved for a long term success of a surgery. We ensure relaxing environment for the patient to recover during the stay , and also provide timely follow-ups even years after the surgery. A patient’s diet plan and lifestyle activities are closely followed upon so that he does not face same health issues again.

    People whose BMI is between, 23.5-27.5 are classified as overweight. If measures to curb this over-weight are not taken in time, a person can easily slip to being obese. A balance of nutritional diet can help them. If your BMI is between, 27.5 – 32.5, you fall into Grade I Obesity category.
    This is borderline stage where you need to be extremely careful. Gastric Banding and Sleeve Gastrectomy prove helpful with such patients.
    Grade II Obesity brings along co-morbidities diseases like hypertension, cardiac problems, joint pain, Type II Diabetes. Before this goes to become a case of morbid obesity, it is important to conduct reversal actions. With BMI beyond 37.5, most patients are bedridden; the diets and exercising hardly given any results. Surgery is the only way out.
    Thus, it is not necessary that every over-weight person needs surgery. If you have any questions regarding your weight condition or lifestyle habits, you are not alone. Contact us for a counselling session in order to understand your condition better.
