Obesity is an accumulation of excessive body fat, which increases your chance of developing various health issues. It is typically caused by overeating and less physical activity. Your body stores a large amount of the consumed food in the form of calories, especially when fat and carbohydrates are ingested in excess. When not burned by physical activities, these extra calories lead to obesity. In some cases, obesity can also result from other factors such as psychological conditions like anxiety and depression, hormonal disorders, and certain medications, namely antidepressants and steroids.

When you book obesity tests, the evaluation includes measuring your height, weight, vital signs like heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature,inspecting your lungs and abdomen and some lab tests.

A healthcare professional employs a measurement system known as the body mass index (BMI) to assess obesity. . BMI is your weight in kilograms (or pounds) divided by the square of height in meters (or feet). Healthcare professionals often consider a BMI of 30 or higher as obese. You may be prescribed some lab tests for further diagnosis.
