As experts in weight loss surgery, we want to delve into the main effects of obesity on health.
The first thing we have to be clear about is that little sleep can affect overall health. You may experience memory loss, trouble concentrating, or more mental fatigue. In addition, if we sleep poorly and little, we can also see an overweight problem aggravated.
Diseases related to being overweight:
- Type 2 diabetes.
- Cardiovascular diseases and hypertension.
- Respiratory diseases (sleep apnea syndrome).
- Some types of cancer.
- Osteoarthritis (degenerative and inflammatory joint injuries).
- Psychological problems.
In general, obesity is related to a low quality of life. These people are predisposed to various cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, high blood cholesterol and triglycerides.
It all depends on the level of overweight or if it is already a picture of obesity. Also, of the location of body fat and the physical activity that is carried out. The main problems are:
Type 2 diabetes
It usually develops in adulthood and is associated with being overweight. Also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, it is more linked to obesity and excess weight.
The risk of developing it increases the higher the BMI. In Laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery in Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Anand, Nadiad, Ahmedabad, we talk about obesity from a BMI of 30. The probability that obese women suffer from type 2 diabetes is 12 times higher than in those with a healthy weight.
Cardiovascular disease and hypertension
It refers to coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease. Obesity predisposes to several cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, high levels of cholesterol in the blood and triglycerides). In addition, the risk of having a heart attack is about three times higher in an obese woman than in a thin woman. It is typical in obese people with accumulation of intra-abdominal fat associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. On the other hand, the relationship between hypertension (high blood pressure) and obesity is proven. The proportion of hypertension attributable to obesity is estimated to be 30-65% in the West.
