BARIATRICS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the preventions and treatments of obesity. It is vital to seek treatment for obesity as the disease puts strain on the heart, resulting in a plethora of other health issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis. These issues lead to coronary heart disease and strokes, which can be fatal.
A Body Mass Index is a system of measurement that compares a person’s mass and height to see if their body ratio is classified as normal, underweight, overweight, or obese. These charts can be found for free online. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) measures 30 or higher, it is strongly recommended that you seek treatment.
