Obesity

Obesity is a common, serious, complex disease particularly associated with the modern way of living. This medical condition is strongly associated with an increased risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and various types of cancer. Obesity usually comes as a result of unhealthy way of living, poor nutrition, lack of physical exercise, inherited factors and/or other environmental factors.

 

 

Your Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your condition can be characterized as Obesity.
