Morbid obesity is when a person has extreme amounts of excess body fat and a body mass index or BMI greater than 40. Some doctors also consider a person to be morbidly obese if their BMI is not over 40, but they are more than 100 pounds overweight. When a person is morbidly obese, they are at greater risk of heart disease, certain illnesses, and conditions that directly affect their quality of life.
