How to overcome obesity

January 2024 Newsletter

The inaugural edition of the “Gut Buster” newsletter welcomes readers to stay informed about services offered by Delta Gastro, updates on current gastrointestinal topics, and the opportunity to submit questions and suggest topics for future newsletters. 

 

The main focus of this edition is on obesity, a medical condition characterized by excess body fat, with its measurement typically assessed through BMI. 

 

The World Health Organization classifies a BMI of 25 or above as overweight and 30 or more as obese. 

 

The newsletter highlights the serious health implications of obesity, including its association with chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.
