Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

The terms ‘overweight’ or ‘obese’ are used to describe excess body weight. Overweight typically refers to weight 10% above the expected body weight for height and build. Obese refers to being 20% over the target. The greater the excess, the more significant the health risk.
