Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product before they can be sold - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.
The most common way to determine if you are overweight is to calculate your BMI (body mass index). This is a measure of whether your weight is regarded as healthy in proportion to your height.
The NHS uses BMI measurements to give patients a medical categorisation for their weight:
18.5 to 24.9 - you are a healthy weight for your height
25 to 29.9 - you are overweight for your height
30 to 39.9 - you are obese for your height
40 or above - you are severely obese for your height
For most people, BMI is a way of determining if they are a healthy weight. However, it should be noted that BMI is not a method of determining or diagnosing obesity. This is because some people with high muscle density can have a higher BMI despite having less body fat.
Another way of calculating your levels of excess fat is measuring your waist size. The NHS states that typically, men who have a waist measurement of 94cm or more and women who have a waist measurement of 80cm or more are at a higher risk of developing obesity-related health issues.
When we consume foods, particularly those high in fat and sugar, the fat is stored in our bodies as energy reserves. Excess weight can usually be attributed to a higher intake of fat than the level of fat metabolised through physical activity.
Excess weight can also be caused by several health conditions (including hypothyroidism), and sometimes due to side effects of certain medications (including some steroids and some mental health related medications).
Being severely overweight can cause health issues that impact your daily activities such as:
Having too much excess weight can also put you at risk of certain health conditions such as coronary heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer (such as breast cancer and bowel cancer) and type 2 diabetes. It can also exaggerate symptoms of existing health conditions like asthma and impact your mental health and self-esteem.
