Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Hello, Thank you for your question. I will try my best to help you with your questions. I need to ask few questions before first.
What is your BMI
Do you have any other medical issues ?
You seem to be offline, i will give you some insight into this issue and you can ask questions when you come back online
Usually BMI more than 30 is considered as obesity.
more than 40 is very obese
unless these are associated with some issues like heart problem, stroke or any other issue they do not require urgent hospitalization.
We use exercise, diet modification and orlistat as main treatment for 6 months,
if there is less than 5% weight loss then treatment is considered as failure
and if BMI is more than 40 we use bariatric surgery, or BMI more than 35 with associated heart, lung problems can also be dealt with surgery.
BMI less than 35 does no qualify for surgery...
You have questions ? let me know...
Rate my answer as excellent if you have received you answer, thank you.
my bmi is 17.6
It is less than normal..
it does not needs treatment
i know but im anorexic and was wondering at what point would they hostipalise me because it was at 16, but i didnt want them to hostipalise me so i put on some weight
Well for low BMI there is no limit
it is the vital signs like pulse blood pressure and symptoms like not able to take orally
that need hospitalization.
you have questions ?
oh ok, if you are attending a cahms unit, can you decide to leave at your own will at 17 or can your parents still force you to go?
you are less than 18 so parents will decide your fate
any further queries ?
Let me know...
but do you not get to be incharge of your own health over 16? like if you can move out at 16 can you not be in charge of your own health?
For medical it is 18 years...
