Radiologist 's  Response
Hello Mr. Robin,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
At present, your ejection fraction is very less and you should immediately consult a cardiologist for further management. Once your ejection fraction comes back to normal you can go for management of our obesity.

From your problems, it seems your obesity maybe because of a genetic cause rather than due to bad food habits. There are many genetic causes for obesity. You should get your thyroid levels checked. Apart from that, a good solution for obesity would be bariatric surgery which would help you to further reduce your weight.

Hope it sorts your problem,

Dr. Pankaj Nagori
