Obesity

Obesity is one of the world’s fastest-growing health problems. Obesity in America is even considered part of a larger obesity epidemic by many health professionals. Being obese poses enormous risks to long and short-term health.

What is Obesity?

Obesity is a condition consisting of being heavily overweight, in many cases in excess of 100 pounds. Those who are obese carry a high amount of body fat, which can lead to a number of complications.

Being obese carries many health risks, including a higher mortality rate. Those who are obese are more at risk for:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension (High blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis

Though obesity is most frequently diagnosed in adults, childhood obesity and teen obesity are also growing problems. If you are obese and need help, it’s best to get started as soon as possible. Call 973-544-1196 or contact us online to get started.

What Causes Obesity?

 Poor diet and lack of exercise are the prevailing factors that cause obesity. There is also a genetic component to excessive weight gain, as the children of obese parents are more likely to be obese themselves.

Some other causes of obesity include:

  • Poor sleep
  • Medication side-effects
  • Quitting smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Depression
  • Other disorders (PCOS, Cushing’s syndrome)
