Prevention: Why obesity needs to be treated

The current epidemic of obesity is leading to premature death and serious illness such as Diabetes, hypertension, strokes and cancer. These illnesses impact on all areas of life and psychological health.

Diet UK weight loss clinics were set up over 20 years ago by Dr Sindy Newman MB BS, who recognised the serious threat medical obesity would pose to public health.

Today, obesity affects approximately 1 in 4 adults in the UK. The most widely used method to measure whether you're a healthy weight for your height is body mass index (BMI). 

For most adults in the UK:
• a BMI of 25-29.9 = overweight
• a BMI of 30-39.9 = obese
• a BMI of 40+ = severely obese

Diet UK slimming clinics are dedicated to tackling obesity and have helped thousands of men and women lose weight and avoid serious weight related illnesses. Our medical doctors are experts in weight loss and have designed medical weight loss programmes which are tailored to each individual.

For most adults in the UK:

  • a BMI of 25-29.9 = overweight
