When too much fat is stored in the body, obesity occurs. But when this overweight becomes severe, we speak of obesity. Those who are obese often experience various health complaints. A lack of energy is one of them. The Allurion Clinic specializes in the fight against obesity and is happy to help you with this.
Obesity is a chronic disease characterized by excessive accumulation of fat in the body. This large accumulation of body fat can negatively affect health.
Your BMI is used to determine whether you are overweight or obese. The Body Mass Index (BMI) calculates a person’s height-to-weight ratio. The result of this calculation is a good indicator to determine whether the weight is healthy or overweight. The chart below* shows the different categories you can fall into based on your BMI. This schedule applies to adults 18 – 73 years old. The WHO defines obesity as occurring at a BMI of 30 or higher.
Less than 18.5 | Underweight
18.5 – 25 | Healthy
25 – 30 | Overweight
30 – 40 | Obesity
40 or higher | Morbid obesity
* This schedule is not to be used for pregnant women, lactating women, seriously ill persons, athletes and adults 74 years of age and older.
