World Obesity Day

Obesity is still a misunderstood disease that affects 800 million people worldwide.

Raising public awareness is very important to help, not only the patient, but the wider community to be better informed to assist in preventing this disease.

World Obesity Day is an initiative dedicated to addressing this “growing global epidemic” and is calling for everybody from patient to policy maker to get involved.

“Obesity is a disease and must be treated as one. We all have a role to play in supporting and advocating for people living with obesity. We must recognise that every body matters if we are to build a healthier world for everybody”.

As healthcare professionals, UGIS proudly supports WOD and we will continue to raise awareness, educate and provide care and treat this disease to help our patients live happier, healthier lives.

To find out how you can support this important cause, head to the World Obesity Day website.

BMI Calculator

BMI is a useful tool for calculating whether you are a healthy weight for your height. If you enter your height and weight below our calculator will provide you with your own BMI. BMI is an effective measurement tool, however it is only one of the factors we look at when examining the relationship between someone’s weight and health. If you are concerned about your BMI please get in touch with one of our helpful team today who will be happy to discuss this with you.
