Morbid Obesity: Health Risks of Severe Overweight

Morbid Obesity

What is Morbid Obesity According to Body Mass Index

Morbid obesity is a term used to describe severe obesity (excess body fat), as defined by the Body Mass Index. Patients with morbid obesity have a body mass index of 40 +.

Anyone with a body mass index of 40+ has an extremely high risk of weight-related disease and premature death. Indeed, they may already be suffering from a weight-related condition. If you are morbidly obese, then for the sake of your health it is very important to see your doctor and get specialist help for your condition.

Body Mass Index - Weight Categories

Body Mass Index conclusions vary slightly according to gender. Here is a general summary of weight-status based on body mass index.

Under 20 (19 for women) = Underweight
Between 20 and 24.99 = Normal Weight
Between 25 and 29.99 = Overweight
Between 30 and 34.99 = Obese Class 1
Between 35 and 39.99 = Obese Class 2
40 and above = Extreme (Morbid) Obesity

Disease Risk According to Body Mass Index

BMI of < 20.00 - Risk = Moderate to Very High
20.00 to 21.99 - Risk = Low
22.00 to 24.99 - Risk = Very Low
25.00 to 29.99 - Risk = Low
30.00 to 34.99 - Risk = Moderate
