Diagnosis of Obesity

Your physician may diagnose your obesity using several paradigms beginning with a physical examination. This will include weight and height measurements to calculate your BMI. Your physician will also require your detailed medical history. They may wish to know when obesity began, your family's health background, your dietary and exercise habits, your smoking and nicotine intake, alcohol use or abuse, as well as previous attempts at losing weight. You might be required to do a few blood tests to check fasting glucose levels, cholesterol or triglycerides levels, obesity-related diseases, etc.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
