What is Obesity?
Obesity is a medical disorder which is caused by accumulation of excess body fat by consuming more energy than the body needs. Obesity, which is one of the most common disorders today, not only affects the life standards, but also affects the physiological and psychological state of the person by causing other diseases.
The most efficient way to detect the obesity is by calculating the Body Mass Index (BMI). Those who have BMI above 40kg/m2 are considered to be Morbidly Obese and even if they do not possess any other ilnesses, they are required to undergo a surgical treatment.
The formula for BMI is weight in kilograms divided by height in meters square. However, BMI rate is not sufficient to make a precise diagnosis of Obesity as it can not be known whether the mass is from fat, or from muscular tissues. For this reason, anyone that has the question “Am I obese?” should consult their doctor to have the right answer.
