Obesity

  • Definition: 
    • Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems.   Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties during sleep, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.  Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive dietary calories, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications or psychiatric illnesses.
  • Prevention and treatment:
    • Stay active
    • Eat healthy
    • Watch your weight
    • Drink adequate amounts of fluid (2.0-2.5 liters) consistently
