Understanding Obesity

Not all obesity is the same and the treatment is based on a calculation called the “Body Mass Index (BMI)”. The BMI does not account for ethnic variability or physical conditioning, but it can provide a quick approximate guide.


< 20 under weight
20-24.9 healthy weight
25-29.9 over weight
30-34.9 obesity
35-39.9 severe obesity
40-49.9 morbid obesity
> 50 super morbid obesity
