To diagnose obesity, doctors with Weight Zero MD use a widely recognized formula called body mass index, or BMI. This is calculated based on a person’s height-to-weight ratio. For most people, BMI is a reliable indicator of body fat. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy, whereas a BMI of 25 to 29.9 indicates that a person is overweight. People with a BMI of 30 or greater are obese. People who are seriously obese have a BMI of 40 or greater.
Doctors at Weight Zero MD also measure waist circumference, which gives more information about a person’s risk of developing obesity-related health conditions. Research has shown that people who are “apple-shaped” and carry most of their body fat around the abdomen are at greater risk for conditions such as heart disease. This is because abdominal fat is thought to break down more easily into fatty acids, which increase the production of LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol, and triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood that contributes to heart disease. Abdominal fat can also cause insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar, to be less effective, which raises the risk of developing diabetes.If you receive a diagnosis of obesity, you and your doctor can come up with a weight loss goal and create an action plan for achieving it. If your doctor determines that other medical conditions may be contributing to weight gain, he or she can refer you to our specialists who can help.
People who are affected by obesity and have had limited success losing weight on their own may benefit from medically supervised weight loss through Weight Zero MD. Our program offers structured support from our weight loss experts and registered dietitians to help you lose weight as quickly and safely as possible.
