Am I Overweight?
When your weight is higher than what is considered to be healthy for your height, you are considered overweight or obese. The Body Mass Index (BMI) scale calculates and measures body fat based on your current weight and height. Calculate your BMI at right, using the imperial measurements.
For Patients with a BMI of 27-34: Non-Surgical Weight Loss is recommended through Lake Cumberland Medical Associates' APRN, Robin Goff. We empower individuals to achieve a healthy lifestyle through sustainable life-long changes in diet, physical activity and personal health management. Unlike other weight loss programs, we offer a medically supervised approach that is tailored to each individual need.
For Patients with a BMI of 35 or More: Surgical Weight Loss through Lake Cumberland Surgery Specialists, may be an option. Bariatric surgery can benefit obese and morbidly obese people or those with debilitating co-morbidities such as high blood pressure or diabetes who have been unable to lose weight through other methods.
