What is obesity?
Obesity is a medical condition that’s diagnosed if you have a body mass index (BMI) above 30. BMI is a scale that compares your height and your weight to determine if you are at a healthy weight.
In general, a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 indicates a healthy weight. Having a BMI between 25 and 29.9 means you’re overweight.
Being obese means you have excessive body fat. It’s a condition that many Americans face, and common causes include unhealthy diet, inactive lifestyle, and genetics. Some medical conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome and hypothyroidism may make obesity more likely.
Obesity can limit your mobility and make it harder to participate in the activities you love, but it also comes with health complications. Risks of obesity include:
Type 2 diabetes
High blood pressure
When you’re overweight or obese, your body must work harder to operate. Strain on your heart, organs, bones, and more can cause significant health complications.
