What is obesity?

Obesity (overweight) results from a combination of factors such as overeating, insufficient exercise, and genetic factors.

Symptoms of obesity

  • My calorie intake exceeds my calorie usage

  • Problems with liver function on the latest blood test

  • Overweight

  • Family history of obesity

  • History of diabetes or pre-diabetes

  • Snoring

  • Easily fatigued

  • Drink alcohol regularly

Questions your doctor may ask to check for obesity

  • Do you think that you are eating more calories than you are burning?

  • Did your recent blood test show any liver abnormalities?

  • Have you gained weight all over your body, not just around your stomach?

  • Do you have a family history of obesity or being overweight?

  • Have you ever been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes?

Treatment for obesity

The goal of treatment is to reach and maintain a healthy weight through a combination of diet changes and increased exercise. In severe cases, a doctor may recommend medication or surgery to assist with weight loss.
