Obesity, to put it bluntly, is the condition that people have a weight of fat well above their ideal weight level. In overweight individuals, the proportion of adipose tissue in the body increases and this leads to obesity. BMI (Body mass index) unit is used to evaluate whether people are obese. It has been observed that the risk factor for many diseases increases in obese individuals with a BMI value above a certain value. For this reason, obesity should be carefully monitored by a specialist doctor and it should be tried to ensure that patients reach normal weight values with various methods.
Obesity is seen with an increasing frequency in society day by day with the changes in daily life styles and dietary patterns. Since obesity is suspected at the basis of the development of many diseases, obesity should be regarded as a disease that should never be ignored.
