Treatment of Obesity

Treatment of Obesity

What is Obesity?

"Obesity" is excess body fat. Obese patients are defined as those with a body mass index of 30+. "Central Obesity" refers to excessive abdominal body fat common to very overweight individuals with an 'apple' body shape. "Morbid Obesity" refers to obese patients with a body mass index of 40+.

How is Obesity Treated?

The precise method of treatment depends on a patient's level of obesity, overall health condition, and motivation to lose weight. Obesity treatment may include a combination of diet therapy, exercise therapy, behavior modification, or weight-loss drugs. In cases of morbid obesity or severe obesity with co-morbid conditions, weight loss surgery may be recommended.

Obesity Treatment Facts

  • A mixture of diet, physical activity and behavioural counseling is probably more effective in sustaining weight loss than diet or exercise alone in adults.
  • Obesity reduction and weight control is a life-long effort and may involve a series of major changes in eating habits, physical exercise routines and general lifestyle.
  • The overwhelming evidence is that overweight and obese people should be encouraged to integrate changes to their lifestyle over a longer period of time to maintain the benefit of initial weight loss. A combination of decreased food intake and increased physical activity is more likely to lead to sustained weight loss.
