Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. BMI is a measure of your weight in relation to your height. Class 1 obesity means a BMI of 30 to 35, Class 2 obesity is a BMI of 35 to 40 and Class 3 obesity is a BMI of 40 or more. Classes 2 and 3, also known as severe obesity, are often difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone.

Obesity surgery Tunisia is an operation that helps you lose weight by modifying your digestive system. Some types of bariatric surgery make your stomach smaller, allowing you to eat and drink less at the same time and feel full sooner. Other bariatric surgeries decrease intestinal absorption time by altering your small intestine, the part of your body that absorbs calories and nutrients from food and drink.
