Morbid Obesity

Morbid Obesity is a disease that affects more than 10 million Americans. People suffering from morbid obesity also develop co-morbidities, such as Diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, arthritis, and sleep apnea caused by the buildup of excess fatty tissue.

Individuals with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of greater than 35 are considered Morbidly Obese. To determine your specific weight condition, calculate your BMI using our free online BMI Calculator.
