INAUGURAL PROJECT: ANTI-OBESITY SYNDROME (BODY FITNESS AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT)

 The story of a 625lb mother-of-six who died as a result of her weight is documented in a new TLC show.
Dominique Lanoise, 40, from Miami, Florida, was virtually housebound for almost two decades with her daughters washing, feeding and caring for her.
She died in March, after being given less than a year to live by doctor's who had been waiting to give her potentially life-saving stomach surgery.


 

Commenting on her situation, Dr Oscar Hernandez from the Southern Bariatric Center in Miami, said: 'She’s gone to town eating, there is no operation at these numbers.
'It wasn’t a one time slip-up it was a systematic assassination of her weight loss program.'
During the TLC special, 600-Pound Mom: Race Against Time, he is seen visiting Lanoise at home telling her: 'You are going to die in this bed; this bed is your coffin.'


Dr Jorge Rabaza  the bariatric surgeon in charge of giving her life-saving surgery agreed that operating at that point would be too risky.
'I'm willing to be reasonable with that number. Dominique is 625 I will not do the surgery,' he said.
'There is a high mortality rate for morbidly obese patients, where they get blood clots in their legs and the blood clots go up to their lungs. A large blood clot will kill a patient instantaneously.'


He said the eventual goal was to reduce her stomach by 90per cent.
Lanoise, born in Haiti, started gaining weight aged 16, following the birth of her first daughter, Witelane.
'I used to be skinny but after I had my first baby I got so big.' she told Asiantown.net.
As her weight skyrocketed to more than 600 lbs, she spent her days sitting in bed wrapped in sheets as she couldn't find clothes to fit.



She first came to the media's attention in 2010 when she was forced to stay in Haiti for three months after the earthquake, because she was too heavy for commercial airlines.
Instead she was forced to travel back to the U.S. in a military cargo plane.
Despite doctor’s orders to eat healthier, she continued to indulge in her favorite Haitian dishes and sprinkled her meals with appetite-suppressing powder, wrongly thinking it would counteract the calories.


At one point, Lanoise was close to her target weight - but she explained that 'sometimes I feel so hungry.'
Lanoise's daughters had mixed feelings about the surgery and some are concerned about the risks although they were keen to get her walking again.

 

One of her daughters recalled: 'When they told me the weight. I was like very surprised and very angry. I thought the scale was wrong but as they did it over and over again it was right.'
Dr Hernandez added: 'I do need to have a conference with her daughters, make sure they support what we’re doing. I’m not here 24 hours a day.'

Obesity and Overweight


Key facts
  • Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.
  • In 2008, more than 1.4 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight. Of these over 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese.
  • 65% of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
  • More than 40 million children under the age of five were overweight in 2010.
  • Obesity is preventable.
What are overweight and obesity?

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health.

Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as a person's weight in kilograms divided by the square of his height in meters (kg/m2).

The WHO definition is:

  • a BMI greater than or equal to 25 is overweight
  • a BMI greater than or equal to 30 is obesity.
BMI provides the most useful population-level measure of overweight and obesity as it is the same for both sexes and for all ages of adults. However, it should be considered a rough guide because it may not correspond to the same degree of fatness in different individuals.

Facts about overweight and obesity

Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. In addition, 44% of the diabetes burden, 23% of the ischaemic heart disease burden and between 7% and 41% of certain cancer burdens are attributable to overweight and obesity.

Some WHO global estimates from 2008 follow.

  • More than 1.4 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight.
  • Of these overweight adults, over 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese.
  • Overall, more than one in ten of the world’s adult population was obese.
In 2010, more than 40 million children under five were overweight. Once considered a high-income country problem, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. Close to 35 million overweight children are living in developing countries and 8 million in developed countries.

Overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight. For example, 65% of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kill more people than underweight (this includes all high-income and most middle-income countries).

 

What causes obesity and overweight?

The fundamental cause of obesity and overweight is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. Globally, there has been:

  • an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat, salt and sugars but low in vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients; and
  • a decrease in physical activity due to the increasingly sedentary nature of many forms of work, changing modes of transportation, and increasing urbanization.
Changes in dietary and physical activity patterns are often the result of environmental and societal changes associated with development and lack of supportive policies in sectors such as health, agriculture, transport, urban planning, environment, food processing, distribution, marketing and education.

What are common health consequences of overweight and obesity?


Raised BMI is a major risk factor for noncommunicable diseases such as:

  • cardiovascular diseases (mainly heart disease and stroke), which were the leading cause of death in 2008;
  • diabetes;
  • musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis - a highly disabling degenerative disease of the joints);
  • some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon).
The risk for these noncommunicable diseases increases, with the increase in BMI.

Childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of obesity, premature death and disability in adulthood. But in addition to increased future risks, obese children experience breathing difficulties, increased risk of fractures, hypertension, early markers of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and psychological effects. 


Facing a double burden of disease

Many low- and middle-income countries are now facing a "double burden" of disease.

  • While they continue to deal with the problems of infectious disease and under-nutrition, they are experiencing a rapid upsurge in noncommunicable disease risk factors such as obesity and overweight, particularly in urban settings.
  • It is not uncommon to find under-nutrition and obesity existing side-by-side within the same country, the same community and the same household.
Children in low- and middle-income countries are more vulnerable to inadequate pre-natal, infant and young child nutrition At the same time, they are exposed to high-fat, high-sugar, high-salt, energy-dense, micronutrient-poor foods, which tend to be lower in cost. These dietary patterns in conjunction with low levels of physical activity, result in sharp increases in childhood obesity while undernutrition issues remain unsolved.  (Culled: WHO)
