Our Transformational Success Stories
The Body Mass Index (BMI) measures the weight status of your body in relation to the fat. It is a simple tool that helps to figure out the amount of excess body fat and the associated risks of carrying this extra weight. It can be applied to both men and women. It is advisable to use ‘Body Mass Index’ along with ‘Waist to Hip Ratio’ to get a complete picture of your weight status.
Medical management for obesity is recommended under supervision of an Endocrinologist upto a BMI of 32.5. Bariatric and Metabolic surgery should be considered as a treatment option for obesity in people with Asian ethnicity above a BMI of 32.5 along with at least two of the additional criteria for metabolic syndrome.
Diabetes Treatment& Obesity Therapy
Diabetes and Obesity are both intricately related. Studies have proven beyond a reason of doubt that diabetes can lead to hormonal unbalance, causing weight gain and obesity; and excess weight gain or obesity can disturb regular hormonal secretions in the body, causing diabetes. That’s why often the treatment methods for both go hand in hand. For a person suffering from obesity and diabetes, a joint Diabetes Treatment and Obesity Therapy can be the answer. At Healios we are offering extensive Diabetes Treatment or Obesity Therapy to help those who are riddled by obesity or diabetes or both.
How is Obesity measured?
Obesity in people can be determined with the calculation of the BMI or the Body Mass Index. The BMI is the ratio of a person’s body mass with respect to their weight. It helps determine whether an individual is in the range of acceptable weight or not, according to their gender, ethnicity, height, and other genetic factors. When a person’s BMI exceeds the acceptable range for their category, then they are called overweight. When the BMI shoots up further, even beyond the overweight range, it enters the obesity range, and the person is called obese.
How are Obesity and Diabetes inter-related?
According to a recent study, being overweight stresses the inner workings of individual cells. Specifically, overeating stresses the membranous network inside of cells called endoplasmic reticulum(ER). When the ER has more nutrients to process than it can handle, it sends out an alarm signal telling the cell to dampen down the insulin receptors on the cell surface. This translates to insulin resistance and to persistently high concentrations of the sugar glucose in the blood, which is one of the sure signs of diabetes.
How to control diabetes and obesity?
Controlling blood sugar(glucose) levels is the major goal of diabetes treatment, in order to prevent complications of the disease. Reduction of bodyweight improves glycemic control, mortality and morbidity. Treating obesity in the diabetic is hampered as some diabetic treatments lead to weight gain. Bariatric surgery is currently the most effective anti-obesity treatment and causes long-term remission of diabetes in many patients.
