We can help you with Weight Loss
Is losing weight something that you are struggling with?
In 2017/18, it was estimated that 2 in every 3 Australian adults were overweight or obese. It’s not only the fact that the prevalence is high, there has been an alarming increase in the past quarter of a century. In the last 25 years, the obesity rate in Australia has risen from 1 in 5 (19% in 1995) up to 1 in 3 (31% in 2017/18).
But why is maintaining a healthy weight so important? Being overweight or obese are risk factors for several chronic diseases, but each disease usually has several factors contributing to its development, not just overweightness.
To put it simply, weight and fitness is one of the few common risk factors that is controllable. This means that just a few lifestyle changes could be the difference between you developing something chronic, such as kidney disease.
Some of the more common chronic diseases that overweight and obesity can increase your likelihood of developing, includes chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (eg asthma), back problems, dementia, type II diabetes mellitus, some cancers and cardiovascular disease (eg coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension), to name a few. Overweightness and obesity are the nation’s leading risk factors that contribute to Australians living with diseases.
