Obesity and Overweight: Definition, causes, prevention
Obese and Overweight patient counseling guidelines
Exercise, Physical activities for obese and overweight people
In addition, 44% of the diabetes burden, 23% of the ischaemic heart disease burden and between 7% and 41% of certain cancer burdens are attributable to overweight and obesity.
Which means more health problems ahead. If this trend continues, it is highly likely that more will suffer from high risk diseases that could lead to death.
Childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of obesity, premature death and disability in adulthood. But in addition to increased future risks, obese children experience breathing difficulties, increased risk of fractures, hypertension, early markers of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and psychological effects.
Overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight. For example, 65% of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kill more people than underweight (this includes all high-income and most middle-income countries).Many low- and middle-income countries are now facing a "double burden" of disease.While they continue to deal with the problems of infectious disease and under-nutrition, they are experiencing a rapid upsurge in noncommunicable disease risk factors such as obesity and overweight, particularly in urban settings.It is not uncommon to find under-nutrition and obesity existing side-by-side within the same country, the same community and the same household.Children in low- and middle-income countries are more vulnerable to inadequate pre-natal, infant and young child nutrition At the same time, they are exposed to high-fat, high-sugar, high-salt, energy-dense, micronutrient-poor foods, which tend to be lower in cost but also lower in nutrient quality. These dietary patterns in conjunction with lower levels of physical activity, result in sharp increases in childhood obesity while undernutrition issues remain unsolved.
However, it should be considered a rough guide because it may not correspond to the same degree of fatness in different individuals.BMI MAY BE LESS ACCURATE MEASURE OF ADIPOSTY IN ADULTS WHO ARE HIGHLY MUSCULAR, SO INTERPRETATION IN THIS GROUP MUST ME WITH CAUTION. SOME POPULATION GROUPS HAVE CO-MORBIDITY RISK FACTORS THAT WOULD BE A CONCERN AT DIFFERENT BMIs (LOWER IN ASIAN ADULTS AND HIGHER FOR OLDER PEOPLE).CLINICAL JUDGMENT MUST BE USE
THE APPROACH SHOULD BE ADJUSTED, AS NEEDED, DEPENDING ON THE PATIENT’S CLINICAL NEED AND POTENTIAL TO BENEFIT FROM LOSING WEIGHT.IN OBESE CHILDREN,ASSESSMENT OF COMORBIDITY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED WTH A BMI AT OR ABOVE THE 98TH CENTILE.

Changes in dietary and physical activity patterns are often the result of environmental and societal changes associated with development and lack of supportive policies in sectors such as health, agriculture, transport, urban planning, environment, food processing, distribution, marketing and education.
Raised BMI is a major risk factor for noncommunicable diseases such as:The risk for these noncommunicable diseases increases, with the increase in BMI.
It is preferred to the term "dieting," because it involves more than regulation of food intake or treatment of overweight people. People diagnosed with eating disorders who are not obese or overweight still need to practice weight management. Some health care professionals use the term "nutritional disorders" to cover all disorders related to weight.Before 1980, treatment of overweight people focused on weight loss, with the goal of helping the patient reach an "ideal weight" as defined by standard life insurance height-weight charts. In recent years, however, researchers have discovered that most of the negative health consequences of obesity are improved or controlled by a relatively modest weight loss, perhaps as little as 10% of the patient's body weight. It is not necessary for the person to reach the "ideal" weight to benefit from weight management. Some nutritionists refer to this treatment goal as the "10% solution." Secondly, the fact that most obese people who lose large amounts of weight from reduced-calorie diets regain it within five years has led nutrition experts to emphasize weight management rather than weight loss as an appropriate outcome of treatment.
Both of these factors must be tackled to produce reductions in obesity. Even a modest loss of 5 to 10% body weight in an obese of overweight persons can result in health and well being benefits.
This is monitored through a national public service agreement target.
NSF = NATIONAL SERVICE FRAMEWORK
This White Paper is an important newstage in building a world-class healthand social care system. It meets thehealth challenges of the new century,and adapts to medical advances whileresponding to demographic changes inour society and increasing expectationsof convenience and customer servicefrom the public who fund the healthservice. These proposals, part of theGovernment’s wider reformprogramme, will allow us to acceleratethe move into a new era where theservice is designed around the patientrather than the needs of the patientbeing forced to fit around the servicealready provided.This White Paper builds on theseprinciples and the significant progress,achieved through increased investmentand reform, within the NHS over thelast few years. There are 79,000 morenurses and 27,000 more doctors thanin 1997 with more in training. Waitinglists and waiting times are dramaticallydown, helped in part by giving patientsmore choice and encouraging newproviders within the NHS. Theflexibility and freedoms offered tofoundation hospitals have helped themimprove care and service.Deaths from cancer have fallen by14 per cent, from heart disease by31 per cent. Acute and emergency carein our hospitals has been transformed.Thousands of people in everycommunity owe their lives to theextraordinary medical advances ofrecent decades and to the dedicationof NHS staff.
THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE FROM BLACK AND MINORITY ETHNIC GROUPS, PEOPLE IN VULNERABLE GROUPS (LOW-INCOME FAMILIES), PEOPLE AT LIFE STAGES WITH INCREASED RISK FOR WEIGHT GAIN (PREGNANCY, MENOPAUSE, SMOKING CESSATION).
