Obesity and Metabolic disorders

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. People are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, exceeds 30 kg/m2, with the range 25-30 kg/m2 defined as overweight.

Being overweight or obese predisposes an individual to many medical problems including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, depression and some types of cancer. Endocrinologists work closely with dieticians, exercise physiologists, behavioural therapists and bariatric surgeons as part of the Comprehensive Weight Loss Centre to help patients achieve realistic weight-loss goals and improve health.
