Obesity Profile


What is obesity?


The definition of obesity varies depending on what one reads. In general, overweight and obesity indicate a weight greater than what is healthy. Obesity is a chronic condition defined by an excess amount of body fat. A certain amount of body fat is necessary for storing energy, heat insulation, shock absorption, and other functions.


Body mass index best defines obesity. A person's height and weight determines his or her body mass index. The body mass index (BMI) equals a person's weight in kilograms (kg) divided by their height in meters (m) squared (more information will be found later in the article). Since BMI describes body weight relative to height, there is a strong correlation with total body fat content in adults. An adult who has a BMI of 25-29.9 is overweight, and an adult who has a BMI over 30 is obese. A person with a BMI of 18.5-24.9 has a normal weight. A person is morbidly obese (extreme obesity) if his or her BMI is over 40.



What are the health risks associated with obesity?


Obesity is not just a cosmetic consideration; it is harmful to one's health as it is a risk factor for many conditions. Approximately 75 percent of people in the UAE are obese or overweight. Over 30 per cent of deaths occurred due to heart disease and more than 36 per cent of men and 30 per cent of women in Dubai are overweight, with 11.9 percent people being obese. Patients with a BMI over 40 have a reduced life expectancy. Obesity also increases the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases, including the following:


  • Insulin resistance

  • Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes

  • High blood pressure (hypertension

  • High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)

  • Stroke (cerebrovascular accident or CVA)

  • Heart attack

  • Congestive heart failure

  • Cancer

  • Gallstones

  • Gout and gouty arthritis

  • Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) of the knees, hips, and the lower back

  • Sleep apnea
