Obesity

Obesity means having an unhealthy amount of body fat. This puts your health in danger.

Obesity puts you at greater risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, sleep apnea, some types of cancer, and stroke.

Treatment involves a long-term plan for making lifestyle changes. Medicine or surgery is sometimes used.
