Symptoms of Obesity

Obesity in America has been on the rise for decades. It is responsible for many dangerous health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Doctors diagnose obesity by using the body mass index (BMI), which is essentially a calculation using a person’s height and weight as variables. Doctors will determine if someone is overweight based on a person’s weight in proportion to their height. The formula for BMI is weight (kilograms) divided by height squared (meters). Obese people have A BMI of 30 or higher.
