Smart DIMENSIONS™ offers a compassionate program that provides comprehensive care and support before, during, and after bariatric surgery to help morbidly obese patients in Los Angeles and Orange County learn about obesity.
Obesity is more than just carrying a few extra pounds. When you have significant amounts of weight, your health is at risk. Some of the common medical conditions that are related to obesity are sleep apnea, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and arthritis.
Your body mass index, or BMI, is the best indicator of obesity. Your BMI takes into consideration your height and weight, and when used in conjunction with your waist size, a BMI of 30 or higher is cause for concern, especially if you do not eat right or exercise and are generally inactive. Certain ethnicities have unique BMI numbers, such as Asians, so the best way to find out if you are obese is to schedule an appointment with a bariatric surgeon for a free evaluation.
