Weight management services
Nearly 80% of Wisconsin adults are at risk for health problems – from diabetes to heart disease – due to obesity.
The 2000 Dietary Guidelines for Americans indicate that a person's risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension actually increase when their BMI is greater than 22. Here are the sad facts:
- The proportion of obese U.S. adults nearly doubled in the last decade
- Almost 80% of obese adults have diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, gallbladder disease, high blood cholesterol levels or osteoarthritis
- At least 300,000 deaths a year in the U.S. are due to obesity
- About 44% of adult women and 30% of adult men report trying to lose weight
