A Few Words About Weight Management Service

The 2017 Obesity Update by the OECD placed Canada among its most overweight countries, with 25.8 per cent of the population aged 15 and over considered obese. Only South Africa, the U.K., Australia, Hungary, New Zealand, Mexico and the U.S. had higher rates!

BMI is a useful measurement but it is an excess of body fat in the abdomen, measured simply by waist circumference, that is more indicative of the Metabolic Syndrome profile than BMI.

In fact according to the new definition of The International Diabetes Federation for Metabolic Syndrome, for a person to be defined as having the Metabolic Syndrome they must have: Central obesity (defined as waist circumference with ethnicity specific values) plus any two of four more factors.
