Obesity classification for the Asian population
For extremely obese persons, weight loss surgery is the only proven approach for long-term weight loss.
The body mass index (BMI), which calculates a person’s weight in relation to his height, is a reliable indicator of obesity. The BMI classifies a person’s obesity and the treatment options available to them.
Check the chart below for obesity classification for Asians:
Obesity is on the rise all across the world at an alarming rate. Obesity and its related diseases are a silent killer, responsible for more than 300,000 deaths annually. The worst aspect is that, despite being the forerunner to so many significant ailments, many people do not consider it a disease.
Obesity in India
India is now the world’s third fattest country, with the second-largest diabetes prevalence. Three out of four Indians are overweight, and over half of urban Indians are obese. It is particularly concerning that over 22% of Indian kids are overweight or obese, putting their health at risk in the long term.
Our society is going through a significant nutritional and lifestyle change right now. Obesity and diabetes have become epidemics due to physical inactivity, increased psychosocial stress, food abundance, an ageing population, and genetic traits.
In such a scenario, weight loss surgery in Mumbai is a ray of hope for morbidly obese people.

Visited for a severe gall bladder and liver infectionAfter my father fell ill, we came in contact with Dr Harsh Sheth. He attended to my father with immediacy and confidence. My father started with mild fever and very low saturation levels that had us very worried. Although his RT PCR test was negative, it was on Dr Harsh Sheth insistence that we admitted him in hospital since he wanted to monitor his saturation levels. Due to the early and correct diagnosis by the doctor, we found out that my father had gall bladder stones and a severe infection. Hence, the right diagnosis and immediate surgery saved my father. We are eternally grateful to Dr Harsh Sheth. In such challenging times, it is so important to have such a reassuring and helpful doctor. Today my father is here with us only because of him. We are grateful for his timely intervention.
