• Overview of Obesity
    • Obesity is defined by your BMI or body mass index, which is calculated from your height and weight. Having a high BMI (equal or above 30) can put you at risk for many chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. In addition to this, obesity can lead to sleep apnea, discomfort, and mental illness. However, you can prevent obesity with proper diet and exercise. If you have questions about obesity prevention, contact your physician or make an appointment at the Student Health Services here.
