According to data provided by the World Health Organization, obesity has reached alarming levels in recent years: compared to 1975, the number of affected people has tripled. By 2016, the number of overweight people reached 1.9 billion, and of those 650 million. There was already obesity. This scour annually kills 2.8 million people due to illnesses associated with extra pounds: cardiovascular disease, diabetes and even cancer.
Under these circumstances, unnecessary weight should not be overlooked, but any diet should begin with a health assessment. All this means that more than 5 kilograms above normal weight should be carefully studied, because in most cases it means excess fat in the body.
We need first to examine all thyroid functions by ultrasound and some tests specific to thyroid function, ie. Then we need to do ultrasound of the abdomen to see the fats in the internal organs. Most people with obesity have fatty liver and usually fat. Where we have fat: the internal organs (fatty liver is the most common fat in men) in the bloodstream (cholesterol, triglycerides, cholesterol fractions, this is specific for men and women), and subcutaneously, that fat visible to the naked eye specific for women). Later on, we conducted the usual studies of hepatic function, kidney, carbohydrate metabolism, sugars and fats. ", Recommends doctor Florin Bluneca, a medical specialist in medicine.
In fact, the specialist has an impressive story of weight loss: over 100 pounds that have been given a balanced diet, functional movement and stress management.
Overweight individuals have a body mass index of more than 25 while obesity is associated with a body mass index greater than 30. It is calculated by dividing the weight, expressed in kilograms, into a height in square meters. However, the circumference of the abdomen, as well as the weight composition, should be considered. Worries are mostly excess fat. Therefore, estimating the amount of fat is very important in overweight patients.
"We need to identify the amount of fat in the blood, ie. cholesterol, cholesterol and triglyceride fractions, because they often increase in overweight patients, those of the internal organs and are placed under the skin. At the same time, it is very important to check whether the patient has good blood pressure because cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death in Romania and the EU. If we meet a patient who, besides obesity, is diabetic or pre-diabetic, high blood pressure and high uric acid, the metabolism of defective proteins, this patient is in a metabolic syndrome, a complicated pathology that binds snoring or chronic rhinopathy. the danger is great, because he can die in his sleep. We should not play with such things, but the metabolic syndrome should be identified early, but unfortunately it is diagnosed in Romania and treated in pieces, the dietitian deals with obesity, diabetic diabetes, cardiologist in the area. hypertension. It is very important to integrate things. In my method, we look at the integrator and the holistic patient from all points of view, "says the specialist.
From the list of analyzes needed to determine the best behavior in terms of obesity, it is part of the assessment of blood sugar as well as the level of vitamin D. Each potential illness generates certain menus and changes in lifestyle. A common mistake for those who want to lose weight is intense physical activity, given an impressive number of extra pounds. Ioan Florin Bălănică recommends the functional movement, but only after a careful assessment.
"We need to identify the condition of the joints because if we want the patient to follow a movement program, we need to know if he can do this and what degree of physical activity he can suffer. In conclusion, it is important to study thyroid function, liver function, kidney, fat metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, protein metabolism, cardiovascular function by ECG, and blood pressure and, optionally, vitamin D measurements. one is personal and we have to turn differently.
By the way, 70% of the conditions arise due to an unbalanced lifestyle, and obesity is no exception. It can be prevented by a balanced diet, moderate movement, stress management and environmental awareness. But if it's already installed, you can just fix it by visiting a physician specializing in weight loss, conducting research and meeting lifetime recommendations.
