Generalized Obesity is a type of obesity in which the excess fat is distributed evenly throughout the body rather than being concentrated in one area. Generalized Obesity is also defined when the body mass index (BMI) is greater than or equal to thirty. Having Generalized Obesity can greatly increase a person’s risk of developing Type II Diabetes, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, and various pressures on joint health. Having Obesity can even decrease the expected life span of a person. Typically, Obesity is caused by having an excessive intake of calories and by a lack of exercise. As such, weight loss to treat Obesity is often achieved through maintained diet and exercise. Other approaches to weight loss include prescription weight loss drugs and surgery.
