Patients who are overweight are more likely to experience other health problems, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. In addition, being overweight puts unnecessary stress on the body, which can lead to injuries and chronic pain. Furthermore, patients at a healthy weight are more likely to enjoy good self-esteem and high confidence than patients who are overweight.
Patients can determine whether they may need to lose weight based on their body mass index, or BMI. BMI measures the approximate amount of fat in the patient’s body based on the patient’s current weight and height.
To have a normal body weight, patients should usually aim for a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9. Patients with a BMI of 25 or more are considered overweight, while patients with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese.
