Health Issues Linked To Obesity

By Tony Wang

Being obese is bad for our health because there is a lot of accompanying health risks involved. Studies show that if your body mass index is below 25 then you are safe, but if it is above 30, then you are considered as an obese person. Obesity can be the cause of over a hundred illnesses, so it is best to know what they are. Read on below to find out more about them.

The leading cause of death all over the world is hypertension and cardiovascular problems. You can be sure that obese people have hypertension and this is one reason why the heart maybe enlarged. Obese people also have a lot of fat deposits in the blood vessels and it is dangerous when they become dislodged because they could go to the heart and cause a heart attack.

Ingestion of transfats, commonly known as bad fats, is also harmful to the body because it can become diabetes type 2 when left unmanaged. To manage type 2 diabetes, one must completely change his lifestyle to be able to control the blood sugar in his body.

Because the fat deposits are blocking the oxygen pathway, there is no way for them to supply oxygen to the heart and other parts of the body. This in turn makes them lethargic and irritable. It could lead to heart attack so be sure to send him straight to the emergency room for treatment.

Impurities like uric acid tend to stay in the body unless it is cleansed out. Being obese means that you have an abundant supply of these toxins that will later harden and form around your joints as gout and that would cause problems for your family later on.

Infertility is also a side effect of being obese. Hormone imbalance may occur because people who are obese have higher levels of estrogen than in normal people. What does this mean? When there is hormonal imbalance, a woman’s menstrual cycle is disturbed, therefore causing unwanted infertility.

There are still a lot more health problems related to obesity. These are just the common ones that you need to watch out for. Remember the root cause of this is obesity, so if you exercise now and shed off that excess weight, then these other health conditions get thrown out of the window as well.

The writer additionally often gives advice on products like the pedestal sink and corner bathroom vanity.
