Taking an objective look at your weight gets harder every day in America, and its something people are getting less willing to do as well. Everyday I see people convince themselves that overweight is healthy or that their weight is average because its near the median or that their weight isn’t causing health problems.
Obesity doesn’t necessitate a diagnoses of high blood pressure, but it certainly ramps up your likelihood of having or developing blood pressure issues. Fat cells often place additional stress on the kidneys, which regulate the amount of blood in the body. Without weight loss a patient will need constant medicating, however even just a little weight reduction can reduce the amount of treatment required.
A Look At The Issues
Don’t be fat. You’ll be unhealthy but more importantly you’ll be unattractive, which I can only imagine sucks. There are of course other health problems that come along with obesity, but that gives you an idea.
Around eight percent of patients diagnosed with diabetes are over weight. While physicians aren’t 100% about what links obesity to diabetes, they are agreed that there is a direct link and that reducing weight reduces your risk of diabetes. Even for the already diagnosed diabetic, engaging in a healthy lifestyle now could mean completely eliminating your treatment necessities tomorrow.
Doctors use heart disease as a term to cover the biggest heart problems such as sudden cardiac arrest or agina which is chest pain. Nearly all overweight diagnoses leads to some form of serious heart disease at the end of the day. High blood pressure, like diabetes, both lead to increased risk for heart disease, whether that means a stoke or an off heart rhythm.
Type 2 diabetes is a blood sugar disorder in which blood sugar levels are abnormally high, causing major stress to the body’s organs. In 2009 this was one of the biggest killers in America, and although genetics play a factor in developing type 2 diabetes, it has a direct link to being overweight.
A patient with high blood pressure forces their heart to do extra work and puts their kidneys at risk of failure. When someone has high blood pressure their body is doing exactly as described: the blood is pushing harder than it should be on the walls of arteries and veins. Every pump the heart performs is sending blood to every artery in the body.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in USA, and weight problems are the source of this. Losing weight means directly affecting your chances of heart diseases. Even a five percent body weight reduction can have big effects. Weight loss directly lowers cholesterol, blood pressure, and stress on other organs, all of which are linked to your heart’s health.
The truth is that obese and overweight bodies are unattractive, unhealthy, and at risk for some seriously crippling health conditions that no one should have to suffer through. We’ve listed some of the more common health problems that the obese get diagnosed with every day. All of these disorders are 100% reversible and controllable with weight loss.
