Twigging childhood obesity: How can I tell if my child is obese or overweight?

Before we get to this, let me correct an illusion. It must be noted that, it is not true that just by mare observing the size of your child size is conclusive enough to suggest that a child is overweight or obese. That is a myth which is misleading.

There are different measurements a doctor may take to tell whether your child is overweight. Like for example:

Weight and height – can be compared and plotted on a growth chart.

Skinfold thickness – measured at the triceps (back of the upper arm) with a caliper that pinches the skin and fat together will be higher than expected in an overweight child.

The best measurement to take is body mass index (BMI). It is fairly complicated to calculate and understand. The percentile may be different depending on gender but all the same, it is important noting that a BMI above 85 percentile for children is at risk of overweight while that above 95 is not at risk but is overweight or obese. When this is has been established, corrective measures needs to be taken immediately and if there is anything you cannot do on your own at home, waste no time and schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury for professional touch.

Chronic diseases and being overweight

Chronic diseases

Chronic diseases and being overweight can be prevented by avoiding unhealthy weight gain

Chronic diseases and being overweight: Hypertension

The relationship between obesity many other chronic diseases like hypertension has been investigated in a large number of cross-sectional population studies and a smaller number of prospective, observational studies. The research findings had indicated that in most populations, blood pressure increases linearly with relative increase in body weight or body mass index. This relationship was evident in all subgroups. This notwithstanding that, the magnitude of the association appears greater in whites than blacks and greater in younger than older persons.

According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD, It is estimated that as much as one-third of all hypertension may be attributable to obesity in populations where hypertension and obesity are widely prevalent. Evidence from prospective studies and clinical trials suggests that hypertension in obese patients increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and that drug treatment of hypertension reduces the risk. We will be discussion all the issues relation to heart diseases shortly in our next article. I believe you don’t want to miss this so stay tuned on the link and be the first to know.

Chronic diseases and being overweight: The obese hypertensive

However, it is uncertain whether the risks associated with hypertension and the benefits of treatment are as great in obese hypertensive as they are in lean hypertensive. The effects of weight reduction on blood pressure have been investigated in a small number of randomized, controlled trials involving a total of about 600 participants. Overall, the results of the trials indicate that weight reduction lowers blood pressure over intervals of up to one year. The magnitude of the blood pressure response appears to be directly proportional to the amount of weight loss achieved. However, the latter is inversely related to the length of follow-up. Adequate maintenance of weight loss remains a major problem for the much-needed, long-term trials of the effects of weight reduction on blood pressure and the cardiovascular complications of hypertension.

From the above studies, it is evident that failing to do something is not an option. The attachments of these chronic diseases to overweight and obesity is something that needs urgent attention. That is why doctor Dalal Akoury made a decision and created this medical center (AWAREmed health and wellness resource center) whose primary objective is to transform each individual’s life in very many ways including through increasing awareness about health and wellness alongside empowering each individuals into finding their own inner healing power. We all have a duty to play and on her part, doctor Akoury’s practice focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms. That means, she is the best you can run to for help in matters like this. If this article is addressing your situation, you can call her on telephone number 843 213 1480 to schedule an appointment for the commencement of your recovery process.

Treating overweight and obesity

Treating overweight

Treating overweight and obesity depends mostly on your lifestyle. Healthy diet and exercise are essential ingredients

Treating overweight and obesity: Complication management

Because being obese can be life threatening, experts are very categorical that treating overweight and obese conditions must be prioritized. And according to the experts at AWAREmed health and wellness resource center under the leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury, MD this can be done in various ways including setting goals and making lifestyle changes, like eating fewer calories and being physically active. Other treatment methods available are medicines and weight-loss surgery for people who may feel that lifestyle changes aren’t enough.

Setting realistic goals

Setting realistic weight-loss goals is an important first step to losing weight. The choice of goals may not be standard. Adults and children choices may be different. We now want to look at the two segment of adults and teens goals respectively.

Goals for Adults

  • An adult should try losing between 5 to 10 percent of their current weight over 6 months. This will lower their risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) and other conditions.
  • The best way to lose weight is gradual. A weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds a week is practical, safe, and will help you keep off the weight. It will also give you the time to make new, healthy lifestyle changes.
  • In the event that you’ve lost say 10 percent of your body weight and have consistently maintained it off for 6 months if after this progress you are still overweight or obese then you may want to consider further weight loss.

Goals for Children and Teens

  • Parents should take the lead role in this and keep monitoring the progress. If your child is overweight or has a high risk of being overweight or obesity, the goal is to maintain their current weight and to focus on healthy feeding and being physically active. To help young ones the whole family should make effort to embrace positive lifestyle changes.
  • If your child is overweight or obese and has a health complication related to overweight or obesity, your doctor may refer you to a pediatric obesity treatment center for further examinations and treatment.

Lifestyle changes

Lifestyle changes can help you and your family achieves long-term weight-loss success by:

  • Focusing on balancing energy received in the body (calories from food and drinks) with energy the body gives out (physical activity)
  • Following a healthy eating plan
  • Learning how to embrace healthy lifestyle habits

Over time, these changes will become a routine in your everyday life which is very good for weight loss.

Treating overweight and obesity: Calories

By reducing the rate of calories intake (i.e. energy in) will be very helpful in weight loss. It is important to note that for an adult to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week they should reduce their calories intake by 500-1000 calories a day. In general, having 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day will help most women lose weight safely while for men it will be 1200 to 1600 calories a day to be effective for proper weight loss. This calorie range for men is also suitable for women who weigh 165 pounds or more or who exercise routinely. This figure can only be achieved with a real commitment which in many cases is lacking. If this describes your situation, you may want to schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury for further professional direction.

Aging adults overweight and obesity complications: Arthritis and osteoarthritis

Primarily arthritis is the main cause of disability in aging adults overweight problems. Experts at AWAREmed health and wellness resource center lead by doctor Dalal Akoury MD agrees that a high body mass index (BMI) is associated with the risk factor for knee osteoarthritis (OA) in aging people. The prevalence of OA at this age may reflect bodily changes as a result of a lifetime of being overweight which results in strain on weight-bearing joints. Obesity or overweight raises the load placed on joints, especially at the knee and hip joints. Breakdown in cartilage, resulting from the increased weight on joints result in pain and further functional disability People with arthritis are particularly vulnerable to the stress-pain-depression cycle in which the pain and stiffness caused by the disease leads to reduced mobility and so increases stress, pain, and depression and eventually decreasing the quality of life.

  • The objective of managing arthritis is to maintain the maximum use and function of the joint and the surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
  • The primary key to attaining this objective is engaging in physical activities.
  • However, many people with OA and other joint diseases believe that exercise will cause their arthritis to flare up and increase the pain. This is a not true and the health care provide will be able to dispel it.
  • Stretching exercises of all muscle groups should be done regularly as well as daily active range of motion for all joints.
  • Isotonic exercises, which move the joint in an arc, are also helpful.
  • Aquatic exercise and walking are usually well tolerated by aging people with mild to moderate lower extremity OA.
  • Heat is also helpful in managing arthritis because it reduces stiffness and makes exercise easier.
  • Rest periods between activities help to control the fatigue of arthritis, which is compounded by obesity.

Aging adults overweight and obesity complications: Skin conditions

Older adults who are obese and have skin problems face additional complications because their skin naturally loses about 20% of its dermal thickness with age. This combination of older age, fragile skin, and obesity increases the risk for pressure sores. The first step in addressing skin problems is to:

  • Conduct a skin assessment of obese patients.
  • The exact identity and degree of skin problems will determine the intervention.
  • Older women, urinary incontinence from a large, heavy abdomen causing the valve on the bladder to weaken may result in the leaking of urine when coughing or sneezing.

Finally, it is such a blessing to live long and this blessing must not be seen as a problem to the society because of being obese.

Lean weight delivers better sexual satisfaction

Lean weight

Lean weight delivers better sexual satisfaction and so keeping healthy weight for a life time is very essential to avoid weight related sicknesses

Lean weight delivers better sexual satisfaction: The role of weight in quality sex

Are you having problems with your sexual life? Is your partner showing signs of dissatisfaction each time you have sex? I could ask several questions but just those two are enough for the purpose of introducing this topic of discussion (lean weight delivers better sexual satisfaction). We are focusing on whether better sex is realized with a lean weight. Sex is a very key component in any relationship and whenever it is feels threaten then such relationships involved will begin feeling some form of discomforts. Therefore before we get to that point, we want to engage the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to help us understand the significance of being overweight or obese in individual’s sexual life. According to doctor Dalal Akoury (MD) and also the founder of this health facility, being overweight will for sure affect your libido. However these effects could be corrected with practicing some changes that can jump-start your sex drive and save your relationship from further disintegration.

Nonetheless before we explore that aspect of discussion, let us take a moment and look at the atmosphere we live in. honestly speaking there is a lot of sex information around us including the street, learning institutions, media both electronic and print, in social place and even in the churches. In one of the media it was reported that looking, feeling, acting, and just being sexy is the order of the day where the atmosphere is all about sleep your way to sexier sizzle, walking away impotence and going Italian for a better love life. All these are pointers to the fact that sex is basic and if weight is an issue then it must be addressed promptly.

Besides that it is true that cultural messages also continue to tell us that no one bigger than a size 6 should be singing the siren song of sexuality. And just like it is impossible to have a solution of oil and water so being overweight and sexy just doesn’t have a relationship. For those already struggling with weight and image issues, that powerful message can easily throw a wet blanket on even the most active libido says doctor Dalal Akoury.

Unfortunately, people are internalizing society’s definition of what it takes to be involved in sex, and more so in the context of the body shape (lean weight) there are clearly societal biases out there that are influencing us on an individual level and not in a good way. But it turns out that cultural messages aren’t the whole story. New research suggests certain physical conditions that go along with obesity also affect sex drive, further dampening the desires of those who are overweight. Amidst all those challenges there is some element of hope that one can still redeem the situation to suit their needs  by making the following changes to your body (and how you think about your body) to enhance your libido:

  • Lose as little weight as 10 pounds will go a long way in helping you to stimulate sex hormones
  • Eat more nutritious foods, which controlcholesterol and blood sugar levels
  • When working workout purpose the exercise to have the blood flowing to the pelvic area
  • Encourage reading relevant sexy novel and other materials
  • Be comfortable with your body at any size
  • And most importantly believe in your sensuality

After doing all these, the question that follows would be “how do you start?” and from the expert opinion at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, you may want to start by identifying the physical and psychological obstacles that could be standing in your way to a fulfilling sex life.
