Obesity is a medical condition that puts people at risk for various chronic issues. It is when a person weighs much above their ideal body weight range and has excess body fat. This in itself is detrimental to the quality of life. In addition, the increased body weight puts you at risk of various problems, like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancers.

Diabetes is one of the most common health conditions associated with obesity.  Most obese people, especially women, are at high risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Even so, obesity and diabetes mellitus contribute to important risk factors for developing CVD (Cardiovascular Diseases) which  is the leading cause of deaths in women.

One of the common ways of diagnosing obesity is by calculating the body mass index (BMI). However, the comprehensive weight management tests offered by Apollo 24|7 can help better ascertain the mainspring of these weight related health problems.

Usually, based on BMI results, people can be grouped into five categories, such as: 

  • <18.5 – Underweight
  • 18.5-24.9 – Healthy weight
  • 25-29.9 – Overweight
  • 30-34 – Class 1 Obesity
  • 35-39 – Class 2 Obesity
  • 40+ – Class 3 Obesity

A few common factors influencing the occurrence of obesity are as follows:

  • Genetic inheritance 
  • Poor lifestyle choices, such as unhealthy diets, liquid calories, etc. 
  • Sedentary lifestyle 
  • Disorders like Prader-Willi syndrome, Arthritis, Cushing syndrome, etc. 
  • Certain medications, such as steroids, beta-blockers, antidepressants, anti-seizure and antipsychotic medications. 
  • Pregnancy

Opting for a range of weight management tests online can help with early detection of the diseases associated with being overweight. Clinical diagnosis followed by tests, can help you make the right lifestyle choices in managing your weight better.
