Recognized worldwide since 1997 as a chronic disease, obesity is one of the main causes of death in the world. The Overweight and Obesity Clinic is offering free consultations on March 14 and 15 to overweight people who want personalized information.

A source of physical and psychological suffering, obesity is neither a choice nor an inevitability

According to the WHO (World Health Organization), obesity is characterized by an abnormal or excessive accumulation of body fat that can be harmful to health. It is therefore a disease, and much more than a cosmetic problem. By calculating the BMI (body mass index), it is possible to determine if a person has a weight problem. Overweight appears from a BMI of 25; obesity from a BMI of 30 and morbid obesity from a BMI of 40.

Calculate your BMI here to see where you stand.

Discovering obesity in the context of another disease

It's not always easy to hear from your doctor or another health care professional that you need to lose weight. However, many diseases are closely linked to overweight and obesity. Obesity can lead to other diseases and health complications. It is therefore not uncommon for a doctor who sees a patient with diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, infertility, reflux, etc. to have to explain to him that he is overweight.
