When you consume a large amount of calories, you store them in the form of fat in your body.
Obesity is not just a heavy weight, but an excess of body fat.
Diagnosis of Obesity
The most common diagnostic criteria are body mass index (BMI), weight (kg)/height (m)^2), and waist circumference is commonly used to diagnose body fat distribution and abdominal obesity.
Note) Body mass index (BMI) criteria
Normal = 8.5 to 22.9, overweight = 23 to 24.9,
Obesity = 25.0 to 29.9, high obesity = 30 or higher
Note) Waist circumference criteria
-Abdominal obesity for men over 90 cm and women over 85 cm
The possibility of obesity is predicted in five stages by analyzing 11 genes associated with obesity, such as converting carbohydrates into fat, suppressing appetite, weight control, and involvement in fatty metabolism.
