How much does a Obesity screening test cost?
Obesity is a complex medical condition that occurs when a person has excess body fat that can negatively affect their health. It is typically defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. Obesity can lead to a range of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. It can also affect a person's mental health and quality of life.
A thyroid test can reveal whether an individual has an underactive or overactive thyroid gland, which can contribute to obesity. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolism, and an imbalance in thyroid hormone levels can affect weight. An HbA1c test measures the average level of blood sugar over the past 2-3 months and can help identify whether an individual has pre-diabetes or diabetes, both of which are associated with obesity. A lipid test measures the amount of cholesterol and other fats in the blood and can identify whether an individual has high levels of "bad" cholesterol, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, both of which are more common in people with obesity.
