Who should lose weight?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Adults can benefit from weight loss if they are moderately to severely overweight. Adults who are overweight and have weight-related medical problems or a family history of such problems can benefit from weight loss. Some weight-related health problems include diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, or high blood sugar levels. Even a small weight loss of 10 to 20 pounds can improve one’s health. One does not need to lose weight if one’s weight is within the healthy range on the weight-for-height chart.
