What BMI is considered obese?

A:

A BMI (Body Mass Index) of greater than 30 has been widely accepted as a measure of obesity. A BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight, and an ideal BMI would be between 18 and 25. Body Mass Index is a simple calculation to look at how heavy a person is given their height.

Why did my doctor prescribe metformin for my PCOS?

A:

Metformin is a medication typically used for people with diabetes or issues with their insulin production.

Q:

How is melanoma treated?

A:

Melanoma treatment has the best chance at success if the melanoma is caught early. The melanoma tumour on the skin needs to be removed surgically, along with a certain amount of normal skin around the tumour to ensure the surrounding cells aren't affected. Depending on the stage of the melanoma, you may need only one surgery to treat it, or you may require future surgeries along with scans to detect if the melanoma has spread to other tissues in the body.
