Whether you have battled weight fluctuations since childhood or have experienced significant weight gain, IBI Healthcare Institute, one of the best providers in Ga of bariatric procedures, is committed to finding the best weight loss treatment for you.
There are many factors that contribute to obesity and some make it virtually impossible for an obese individual to lose weight without some type of medical intervention. At IBI Healthcare Institute we understand these nuances and do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” mentality. We work with our patients on an individual basis to create a plan that will facilitate weight loss in a safe way, resulting in a healthier lifestyle and better overall quality of life.
What Is Obesity?
Obesity is defined by the World Health Organization as “abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health”.
Obesity has reached epidemic levels in the United States with the latest statistics reporting that 35% of adults and 15–20% of children in the US are obese.
How Is Obesity Determined?
There is a universal system for determining obesity that uses a basic calculation of a patient’s height and weight. The resulting figure from this calculation is the individual’s body mass index (BMI)
The Standard BMI Chart
|BMI Range||BMI Category|
|Less than 18.5||Underweight|
|18.5 to 24.9||Healthy Weight|
|25 to 29.9||Overweight|
|30 to 34.9||Class I obesity|
|35 to 39.9||Class II obesity|
|40 to 49.9||Class III obesity|
|50+||Class IV obesity|
If you do not know where you fall on the chart, you can check your BMI using this BMI calculator.
