Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Παχυσαρκίας


Η Παχυσαρκία είναι η πάθηση που προκαλείται από υπερβολική συσσώρευση λίπους στο σώμα. Έχει δυσμενείς επιπτώσεις στην υγεία, οδηγώντας σε μείωση του προσδόκιμου ζωής και αυξημένα προβλήματα υγείας. Ένας απλός τρόπος εκτίμησης της παχυσαρκίας είναι ο Δείκτης Μάζας Σώματος (ΔΜΣ), που εκφράζει το πηλίκο του σωματικού βάρους σε κιλά προς το τετράγωνο τους ύψους σε μέτρα. Ένα άτομο χαρακτηρίζεται λιποβαρές με ΔΜΣ < 18,5, φυσιολογικό με 18,5-25,0, υπέρβαρο με 25-30 και παχύσαρκο με ΔΜΣ > 30 (30-35 στάδιο I, 35-40 στάδιο II, > 40 στάδιο III).

Σύμφωνα με την WOF, το 2014 το 39% του παγκόσμιου πληθυσμού ήταν υπέρβαρο και το 13% παχύσαρκο, ενώ η συχνότητα της παχυσαρκίας έχει διπλασιαστεί από το 1980. Ωστόσο, πιο ανησυχητική είναι η παχυσαρκία των παιδιών, η οποία επίσης βαίνει αυξανόμενη.

Στη χώρα μας, σύμφωνα με την Πανελλήνια επιδημιολογική μελέτη που έγινε το 2003 από την Ελληνική Ιατρική Εταιρεία Παχυσαρκίας (ΕΙΕΠ) σε δείγμα 17.341 ενηλίκων και 18.055 παιδιών και εφήβων, διαπιστώθηκε ότι το 21,9% των ενηλίκων ήταν παχύσαρκοι και το 57,1% υπέρβαροι. Ταυτόχρονα, παρατηρήθηκε συνεχής και σταθερή αύξηση της παιδικής και εφηβικής παχυσαρκίας, σε ποσοστά που κυμαίνονται από 7,2% έως 20,7%.
