One of the most common concerns we see with people coming into Kohn Medical & Weight Loss relates to body fat. People are concerned they may have too much body fat, and it is a problem either for their appearance, their health, or both. Fortunately, Kohn Medical & Weight Loss has special expertise in dealing with these issues and can provide you with the treatment you need.
What Is Body Fat?
Body fat refers to the cells in your body that make up the percentage of your body that is not skin, bone, muscles or organs. There are different types of body fat, and some are essential for your survival. For example, fat in your brain or around your nerves or other organs protect them from harm. Fat also keeps you warm and regulates hormones such as cortisol, insulin and estrogen for women. When you have too much fat, however, it can become a problem.
What Is Wrong With Having Excess Fat?
Most medical estimates suggest that for non-athletes, a fat percentage of around 20 percent for men and 25 percent for women is healthy. Body fat percentage 25 percent or higher for men and higher than 31 percent for women can start to put you at greater risk for conditions like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, coronary artery disease, and other illnesses. In addition, excess fat can accumulate in areas like the stomach, thighs, face, and neck, which many people consider to be unsightly.
