People whose BMI is between, 23.5-27.5 are classified as overweight. If measures to curb this over-weight are not taken in time, a person can easily slip to being obese. A balance of nutritional diet can help them. If your BMI is between, 27.5 – 32.5, you fall into Grade I Obesity category.
This is borderline stage where you need to be extremely careful. Gastric Banding and Sleeve Gastrectomy prove helpful with such patients.
Grade II Obesity brings along co-morbidities diseases like hypertension, cardiac problems, joint pain, Type II Diabetes. Before this goes to become a case of morbid obesity, it is important to conduct reversal actions. With BMI beyond 37.5, most patients are bedridden; the diets and exercising hardly given any results. Surgery is the only way out.
