Obesity Treatment

Obesity is a serious condition that affects thousands of individuals and can result in long term side effects including heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and even death. Obesity is determined by measuring the body mass index of an individual as a ratio of their size to their mass. People with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese and are severely overweight.

Obesity affects as many as 1 in 3 American adults but it can be treated. The most common forms of obesity treatment for adults include therapy, counseling, exercise, weight loss medications and in extreme cases, weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass. Although obesity causes many different health conditions, many of them can be reversed with weight loss.

People who are obese may had difficulty sleeping, they may suffer from sleep apnea, and other sleeping problems. Additionally, people who are obese or overweight may also experience pain in the joints and in their backs due to the added weight and stress that is placed on their bodies. Additional side effects of obesity include anxiety, depression, skin irritations and low self-esteem.

For most people, obesity is caused by a lack of physical exercise paired with eating too much or eating the wrong foods. People who eat fast food, sweets or processed foods are at an increased risk of becoming obese. Additionally, people who lead sedentary lifestyles and do not take part in regular exercise are at an increased risk of becoming obese.

If you or someone you know suffers from obesity or is overweight, there are treatments available at various different rehab centers. Counseling, therapy and weight loss can all help to prevent additional complications that are associated with obesity and treatment can also help to reverse some of the negative side effects associated with this condition.
