4. Understanding Adult Obesity
More than 60 percent of Americans aged 20 years and older are overweight. To most people, the term "obesity" means to be very overweight.

More than 60 percent of Americans aged 20 years and older are overweight. One-quarter of American adults are also obese, putting them at increased health risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and some forms of cancer. This fact sheet provides basic information about obesity: What is it? How is it measured? What causes it? What are the health risks? What can you do about it?
What is obesity?
To most people, the term "obesity" means to be very overweight. Health professionals define "overweight" as an excess amount of body weight that includes muscle, bone, fat, and water. "Obesity" specifically refers to an excess amount of body fat. Some people, such as bodybuilders or other athletes with a lot of muscle, can be overweight without being obese.

12. Surgery For Morbid Obesity
An informative and practical guide for massively obese people who may benefit from surgery for weight loss.
This is a practical information guide for people who are considering weight loss surgery. The information on this site is written by surgeons, for the education of people (and their loved ones) who suffer from morbid obesity. The practice of bariatric surgery by Dr. Paul M Selinkoff, Dr. John Pilcher, Dr. Dana Reiss, and Dr. Terive Duperier is based in San Antonio, Texas. Bariatric surgery, (sometimes called stomach stapling, obesity surgery, or weight loss surgery) has been a long-standing focus of our practice, though we remain active in all areas of General Surgery, using the tools of advanced laparoscopy. We invite you to explore our web site to learn exactly what morbid obesity is, and how surgical procedures such as the Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass or the Lap-Band may help you succeed in achieving long-term weight loss. Bariatric Surgery is the area of surgery that treats people who are so overweight that they are suffering health consequences of the excess weight. The surgical therapy of morbid obesity usually involves operations on the stomach such as the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, gastric banding (including the Lap-Band procedure), Biliopancreatic Diversion, or the Vertical Banded Gastroplasty. These operations dramatically restrict one's ability to eat, thus promoting weight loss. We perform the Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass and the Lap-Band

Roles of Mental Health Professionals in Multidisciplinary Medically Supervised Treatment Programs for Obesity
TODAY’S CHALLENGE in health care is to prevent or diagnose, treat, and manage acute or chronic diseases that affect many people while controlling cost, maintaining standards of care, and improving quality of life.1 Obesity is one such treatable disease because of its association with physical, psychosocial, and disability costs that affect quality of life.2-4 In the United States, obesity reaches epidemic proportions, with an estimated 300,000 deaths per year attributed to it.5,6 For the severely obese, it is a chronic, heterogeneous, multisystemic disease that has many equivocal causes and consequences.4 As with non–insulin-dependent diabetes,7 obesity treatment is not considered or managed as a serious problem and presents difficulties in conforming to the current health care system of treatment and reimbursement.8 Yet, it is expensive to society.9 When compared to our total yearly health care bill of approximately $884 billion (in 1993 dollars),10 the 1990 direct and indirect costs associated with the disease burden, death, disability, products, and services associated with obesity totaled approximately $100 billion.11,12 The prevalence of adults participating in some kind of weight-loss program is 25% of men and 45% of women, or one in three adults.12-14 Purchasers of obesity treatments are increasingly scrutinizing the associated costs, quality, and outcomes of programs.15,16 A proposal has been made to accredit weight-loss treatment programs in a manner similar to that used in accrediting hospital programs.17

Childhood Obesity Obesity in children and adolescents is a serious issue with many health and social consequences that often continue into adulthood. Implementing prevention programs and getting a better understanding of treatment for youngsters is important to controlling the obesity epidemic. Many parents are rightly concerned about their child's weight and how it affects them. They look for specific answers for prevention and treatment options. Unfortunately, the state of the science is a lot less precise than we would like. Are kids too concerned about their weight? What are the best strategies for prevention? What treatments work over a long time? Researchers are trying to answer those and many other questions. In many cases, common sense works well. In situations where there are serious health, psychological or social problems, parents should seek out the best possible advice. Note: The term "childhood obesity" may refer to both children and adolescents. In general, we use the word, "children" to refer to 6 to 11 years of age, and "adolescents" to 12 to 17 years of age. If otherwise, and when possible, we will use a specific age or age range. Prevalence and Identification

Is The Surgery For You?

Severe obesity is a long term condition that is very difficult to treat. Surgery to promote weight loss by restricting food intake or interrupting the digestive process is an option for severely obese people. A body mass index (BMI) above 40which means about 100 pounds of overweight for men and about 80 pounds for womenindicates that a person is severely obese and therefore a candidate for surgery. Surgery also may be an option for people with a BMI between 35 and 40 who suffer from life-threatening problems (for example, severe sleep apnea or obesity-related heart disease) or diabetes. However, as in other treatments for obesity, successful results depend mainly on motivation and behavior. Any questions or comments?
