Book Description:
Morbid obesity, also known as clinically severe obesity, is an abnormal obesity defined as the condition of having body weight over 100 lbs over an ideal body weight or having a body mass index of 40 or higher. The term reflects the fact that this kind of obesity becomes associated with significant morbidity by increasing the risk of various obesity-related medical conditions. This book presents new and significant research in the field from around the world.
